FCCLA students smile after placing gold in all competitions at the Region 4 competition.

FCCLA stood out in Montgomery City on Jan. 29, placing all gold in Region 4 competition. They participated in four categories: event management, promote and publicize, food innovations, and focus on the children. These categories are called STAR events, which stands for “Students Taking Action with Recognition.” Students can choose the events they want to partake in and compete. 

Paige Quinn, a senior who has been in FCCLA since she was a freshman, says that she thinks her group did very well at the competition. Quinn participated in the category, promote and publicize with fellow senior Gabby Medina. For their project, they went to Frontier Middle School and taught 7th and 8th graders about FCCLA. Quinn recalls when she found out she won gold.

Whenever we found out we got gold, it felt awesome to know that all our hard work paid off,” Quinn said. 

Other students in FCCLA like freshmen MaryKate Stroud and Catalina Campos, competed together in their category food innovations. For Stroud and Campos’s project, they created a trifold poster that contained information about cake balls that are sugar-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, high on fiber, and extremely high on protein

We saw that in our community today, a lot of our young athletes are not receiving the nutritional income that they should be receiving, so we made a dessert that is healthy, good tasting and geared to those who are active in sports,” Campos said. 

Campos says that FCCLA has shaped her leadership skills as well as strengthened her public speaking skills. 

“FCCLA has given me many opportunities to work with the people in our community to help with service projects,” Campos said. 

Mrs. Pizzo, who sponsors FCCLA, loves seeing students coming together to create a community. Pizzo says she loves seeing the “transformation in kids and how they learn about becoming leaders.”

After their big win at regionals, FCCLA goes on to state during spring break in March. Then nationals are in the summer in Seattle, Wash.
