FCCLA Awards & Scholarships
Awards and Recognition
Master Advisers and Adviser Mentors
This is a two-step recognition program. Master advisers are local advisers who have displayed outstanding skills in advising co-curricular chapters. The expertise of these advisers will be tapped to assist beginning advisers in the second level of recognition, Adviser Mentors.
Master Advisers and Adviser Mentors will be recognized at the annual State FCCLA Leadership Conference during the Advisers Session. All recipients selected on the state level will be recognized at the annual National Leadership Meeting. Advisers need not be present at the National Leadership Meeting to receive this recognition.
Candidates should complete and send the application and recommendations to the state office. This application can be submitted by the candidate or as a nomination by another adviser, teacher educator, local Family and Consumer Sciences & Human Services supervisor, or professional colleague. When nominating others, it may be best to contact the nominee to obtain complete information.
Excellence in Advising Award
Advisers that go "above and beyond" for their FCCLA members may be nominated by any FCCLA chapter president, officer or member. Since this award is not based on years of advising, all chapter advisers are eligible to be nominated. Recipients will be recognized during the State Leadership Conference. A committee appointed by the State Executive Council will determine the number of award recipients.
Advisers, you work hard to make FCCLA an important and positive part of your students' lives. Do not discourage your members if they mention they would like to nominate you! Consider it a well-deserved compliment.
Years of Service Award
Individuals who have served as an adviser will be given recognition at the annual State FCCLA Leadership Conference for their years of service to an affiliated (state and national dues paying) FCCLA chapter, Beginning at the 5 year level. Advisers will be recognized in five-year increments, i.e., 5, 10, 15, 20 years and up.
