The Minden FCCLA will be represented at the National Conference in Anaheim, California this summer by freshmen Abby Fiske and Peyton Schoone. The duo will be competing in the Focus on Children STAR event. Their project encourages a Perseverance, Grit, and Growth Mindset in young children.
They chose to compete in a foundational event that would allow them to get involved in their community. Focus on Children requires participants to plan and conduct a child development project that has a positive impact on children and the community.
“Abby’s mom is a teacher and she was talking about the different STAR projects we could do. Her mom talked to her about the unit they were learning and how it’s needed in children’s lives at a younger age,” Schoone explained.
