Virginia FCCLA Public Relations Recognition

VA PR logo

Virginia FCCLA recommends that chapters develop a yearly "program of work," which includes planning and implementing projects in those national FCCLA programs that connect to the FACS courses offered in their school. The program of work should also address the goals of national FCCLA and the Virginia Association, which includes publicizing local FCCLA projects and activities. These goals are part of the Strategic Plan for FCCLA, which is found on the national Web site.

The Virginia Outstanding Chapter Award is designed to recognize chapters whose program of work includes activities that address each goal in the Strategic Plan, including public relations efforts.

To receive recognition at the Virginia FCCLA state conference, email confirmation of your chapter's submission of the national Public Relations Award to: 
Debbie Will
