FCCLA State Competitive Events
April 7 - 9, 2021
This year the Perryton High School FCCLA chapter and members have had to do a lot of adjusting and adapting to stay involved and competitive. Due to the variety of school environments across the state of Texas this year our state FCCLA competition became a hybrid event meaning that some students had to compete on line or pre-record and upload materials prior to the competition dates, compete live via Zoom, and one member had the opportunity to compete face to face in Dallas. There were 2,000 competitors at state FCCLA this year.
The Perryton High School FCCLA chapter was recognized as being a Gold Star chapter for this school year.
PHS FCCLA had 10 members who participated in the FCSA testing event. In the Creed, Mission Purpose FCSA Ian Becerril, Evelyn Camacho, and Katie Tarango received gold medals. Katie Montes, Natalie Castaneda, Jasmin Gallardo, and Yamel Granillo received a silver medal. Lucia Valles received a Bronze medal. In the Step One FCSA Kayla Chairez received a Silver medal award. Honorable mention was Ximena Mendoza.
Our chapter had three Spotlight on Project events that advanced to state competition. Katie Tarango won the People’s Choice award for her Power of One project over caring for her family pet Otis. Kayla Chairez and Abby Vargas won People’s Choice award and Evaluator’s Choice award for their Stand Up project over advocating and raising awareness for domestic violence awareness, dating violence awareness and sex trafficking. Kayla and Abby’s project will advance to national competition. Honorable mention goes to Evelyn Camcho and Katie Montes for their Student Body project over stress management.
Three of our chapter members were recognized for their completion of all five Power of One units of study. Power of One are individualized units of growth that each member can complete on their own. Those three members are Kayla Chairez, Emili Rodriguez, and Alexis Rodriguez.
Melissa Ramos placed 8th in the preliminary round of the Cupcake Presentation level 3 and did not advance to the final round of competition.
Alexis Rodriguez and Isabella Hansen placed 3rd with their Chapter Service Project Portfolio, level 3 highlighting our chapter work with Jireh.

Yeiri Rodriguez with her Sunset Flower Repurpose Redesign level 2 project. Jasmyn Olivas with her Turning Tables Repurpose Redesign level 3 project.
