FCCLA LifeSmarts/Knowledge Bowl Qualifies for Nationals

Selah High School Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) will once again be packing their bags for competition as the LifeSmarts Knowledge Bowl team has qualified for the national championship this summer.Congratulations to the Selah High School FCCLA LifeSmarts/Knowledge Bowl Team which qualified for nationals this summer.

After competing in the Regional qualifier earlier in November in Dallas, the five-lady Selah contingent earned top honors among 40 teams to advance to the national contest in July in Washington D.C. The top 24 teams in the nation representing different regions will compete during the summer competition.  One impressive feat for the Selah contingent during the qualifying event is there is no school size cut-off during competition meaning the delegation competed against schools much larger, including those in other states.

While competing in the LifeSmarts Knowledge Bowl competition, students must prove their competency in multiple content areas as the contest challenges their knowledge across several topics including, Personal Finance, Consumer Rights and Responsibilities, Family, Career and Community Studies, Technology, Fashion and Housing Design, Health and Safety, Food Sciences and Nutrition, Early Childhood and Human Development, Environment, and Hospitality, Tourism and Recreation.   

The Selah squad headed to the nation's capital are: Tessa Fresco, Anna Tamblyn, Grace Erickson, Alexsandra Vargas and Olivia Gargaro. The team is advised by teachers, Michelle McCartney and Shari Brink.

Congratulations to the FCCLA LifeSmarts Knowledge Bowl Team as they advance to Nationals!
