On April 8th, FCCLA members Becky, Storm, and Tara competed at the FCCLA State Leadership Conference held in Columbia, Missouri. Becky competed in the Illustrated Talk category with her project, "One Cup at a Time", focusing on childhood cancer research, and Storm and Tara competed with their Focus on Children project, "My Shiny Teeth", which focused on dental hygiene for elementary students. Both projects earned Gold medals and were overall state winners. They will represent Missouri at the National Leadership Conference that will be held in Nashville, Tennessee in July. Also, congratulations to Becky for being selected as "The Most Outgoing Member" out of 1750 students throughout the state that attended the state conference.

Congratulations and good luck at Nationals!
