FCCLA State Achievements

FCCLA group

Over the weekend of April 16, FCCLA students competed at the state competition. We took 22 students—our largest group yet—and had 3 national Qualifiers, 2 Golds, 11 Silvers, and 5 Bronze.

Yohanna Liben was chosen as the Colorado FCCLA Vice President of Peer Education, and will be representing Overland and our District.

These projects are hard and in depth, so even attempting to compete requires a lot of commitment and we couldn’t be prouder! In addition, we also Received the District of Excellence Award!
