Kittitas Middle School Students Attend Youth Traffic Safety Summit in Washington D.C.

Kittitas Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) applied for the opportunity to participate in a middle school Youth Traffic Safety Summit and were chosen to be one of the ten schools in the nation participating. The event was sponsored by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and was in conjunction with the FCCLA National Cluster Meeting. The four middle school chapter members chosen to attend were Sydney Bare, Dane Gokey, Brooke Ravet and Bode Stermetz, in addition each team also had to be comprised of the state FCCLA adviser,Kay Niemi, the chapter adviser, Cheryl Uceny, faculty member, Rocky Gibson, three parents, Amy Bare, Jayson Gokey and Julie Ravet. Chapter members and team participated in workshops about statistics and research, networked with middle schoolers from nine other rural schools, and developed a project proposal for how they would come back and make a difference in their communities. In March, all ten teams will submit a chapter report based on their projects, and the top three teams will have an all-expense paid trip to the National FCCLA Leadership Conference in Atlanta, Georgia this summer. The Kittitas FCCLA chapter will be looking to create partnerships throughout our community in order to fulfill their plan.

 

If you have more questions about this project, we would be more than willing to answer.  This is a pretty big opportunity for our students, they were in Washington DC Last Thursday through Sunday.
Thank you again for your continued support of our program,
