NIOBRARA COUNTY – Jaden Stauffer, a sophomore at Niobrara County High School will be competing at the 2020 Family Career and Community Leaders of America national conference being held virtually July 7-9.
She is one of six NCHS FCCLA members who were able to compete at the state level of competition which turned into a virtual platform in April due to the coronavirus pandemic. In addition to Jaden, chapter members include Marina Emerson, Drake Lamp, Dalton Larson, Adelle DesEnfants, and Lillian Krueger. Jaden, Lillian, Dalton and Marina were able to move on to compete at Nationals, which was to be held in Washington, D.C., but only Jaden decided to actually compete at the FCCLA Virtual National Leadership Conference.
Jaden completed a project in Nutrition and Wellness. She created and researched nutrition, healthy habits, and prepared meal charts that focused on female college athletes to maintain a healthy lifestyle and focus on overall wellness of the athlete. Jaden was able to collaborate with her cousin who plays basketball at the collegiate level.
The competition events for the national conference start next week, where Jaden’s slide show and videoed oral presentation will be judged. The FCCLA virtual National Leadership Conference will be held July 7-9. The virtual conference will provide speakers, presentations and sessions for students to attend virtually and also be able to gather information and resources through the virtual EXPO.
