Chapter members have the opportunity to plan, carry out, and evaluate projects aimed at addressing important personal, work, and societal issues. FCCLA's national programs provide an established framework for carrying out projects in topics related to Family and Consumer Sciences coursework and curriculum.
FCCLA's National Programs are based on a peer-to-peer education model with youth teaching other youth through knowledge gained in the Family and Consumer Sciences classroom and within the FCCLA national programs. The projects and activities can be completed by an individual FCCLA member, a group of members, or the entire chapter.
The following programs are the chosen focus for the state of Texas for the 2017-2018 school year:
Student Body, Families First, Power of One, Stop the Violence, and FACTS.

Power of One Recognition
Power of One helps students find and use their personal power. Members set their own goals, work to achieve them, and enjoy the results. This is an individual project. The five units of Power of One are: A Better You, Family Ties, Working on Working, Take the Lead, and Speak out For FCCLA.
If you have completed one or more of the Power of One units and would like to be recognized at the region meeting, please fill out the this form before December 1, 2017. Advisors, if you have multiple Power of One submissions, use this form to enter all of your students for recognition. Deadline is December 1, 2017.
If you have completed all five of the Power of One units and would like to be recognized at the State Leadership Conference please submit the Five Unit Recognition Application by March 1, 2018. For more information on how to complete this process visit the National FCCLA website. You can fill out the form on the National Affiliation page.
Spotlight on Projects
In order for service projects to receive more recognition, we will be asking chapters to participate in a service project display that will be voted on by members of FCCLA on the region and state level. Student Body, Families First, Power of One, Stop the Violence, FACTS and other are the six categories that chapters can submit.
Chapters must submit an Intent to Participate form by January 12, 2018. The five projects that receive the most votes from each of the categories on the regional level will be asked to display at the state meeting. The overall project at the state level will be awarded a monetary prize of $100 back to their chapter. Plaques will be awarded to every other top project in each category.
If a chapter would like to submit more than one projects, they must submit a separate Intent to Participate form and create a presentation board for each project they submit. Each chapter is allowed to submit one project per category.
Project Board Guidelines/Requirements:
• MUST include a project identification page to be displayed. (One 8½” x11”page on plain paper, with no graphics or decorations; must include participants’ name(s), chapter name, school, city, region, and project category selected.)
• MUST be on a tabletop, tri-fold project board. (No wider than 36”)
• MUST include a project summary of no more than 50 words.
• MUST include a minimum of 6 captioned pictures.
• MUST NOT have an attendant at the board during the voting period.

*Beyond these guidelines please feel free to be as creative as possible. Students will be voting on your project board; the key to advancing to the State Meeting is making presentation boards easy to understand and creative.
