FCCLA Day at the State Fair of Virginia
2017 Information ~ Wednesday, October 4

Message from the FCCLA Day Coordinator

Hello FCCLA Advisers! 

I hope you have had a restful and fun summer.  I know it is hard to believe, but FCCLA Day at the State Fair in Doswell, Virginia is just around the corner.  I am organizing the event again this year, so if you have any questions feel free to contact me at hmwood@shenandoah.k12.va.us

You will need to review the following important documents - available as a download to the right in red text:

  1. schedule of events for our day at the fair
  2. registration form to use for those that are participating in our contests – pay special attention to highlighted areas
  3. sample press release

FCCLA Day at the State Fair is Wednesday, October 4th   Please note that registration is required.
This can be done at: http://www.statefairva.org/f/19

The Virginia SOL Scavenger Hunt will be available late September on this Virginia FCCLA website.  Copies will not be available at the fair.  You should print copies for your students prior to coming to the fair.  There is no answer key, so explore the fair with your students to find the correct answers. 

Because of the huge volume of entries in our FCCLA Contests, it is imperative that you abide by the attached schedule of events.  Advisers should complete the summary form for his or her chapter and each entry should have an individual entry form securely attached to it.  All necessary forms are attached.  Poster entries will not be returned, so be sure to save a digital copy prior to printing. 

We will be in the same location as last year.  Our tents will be just inside the Field Trip Entry Gate.  Also, please note that the 2017 Field Trip Guide will be posted in early September.  The SOL Scavenger Hunt will be available closer to the Fair date. 

The entry fee is $5.00 per person; chaperones are free based on an 8 student to 1 adult ratio.  Additional adults are admitted for $12 each.  Please check the State Fair of Virginia site (http://www.statefairva.org) for more details.  Keep in mind that information is being added on a regular basis. 

I hope that you are making plans to participate in this exciting learning opportunity.  We are hosting a special community outreach opportunity this year and asking that every member and adviser bring one can of soup to be donated to a Virginia food bank. 

Take Care!
Heather Hiserman


At the 2016 FCCLA Day, members from 44 chapters across the state submitted 478 entries in our contests. Over 300 cans of soup were donated for our outreach project supporting a Virginia food bank. See photos of winning entries below.
