State Competition Results - FCCLA & SkillsUSA
EHOVE students who are involved in the student organizations of SkillsUSA and FCCLA recently came back from competition with several awards.

Early Childhood Education students Ashly Dickman (Margaretta HS), Ashley Kromer (Perkins HS) and Morgan Krebs (Huron HS) came in first in the Early Childhood Team Category. Each team member won a $6000 scholarship from Sullivan University. The team also came in 2nd place in the Language and Literacy Category. Morgan Krebs won an additional $4,000 for 2nd place in the Language & Literacy category.
Early Childhood Education student Olivia Troxel (Norwalk HS) competed in the Concept Curriculum Category. Olivia put together a zoo theme, which is a thematic unit where eight activities are based on the early learning content standards: Math, Social Studies, Language and Science. She won 3rd place and received a $2,000 scholarship.
So, what was it like to compete? “Fun and something different,” said Kromer.
“An honor to compete. It shows me where I compare to others, and how well you can compete under pressure,” said Krebs. Both students agree that the scholarships they won will look good on their college applications.
