Adult Award Application Reminder

The deadline for some Adult Award applications is quickly approaching. Nominate deserving individuals for the Alumni Achievement Award, Honorary Membership Award, and Distinguished Service Award by December 15. Make sure to follow all instructions carefully and include all letters of recommendation and verifications needed. Don't miss out on this opportunity to recognize dedicated FCCLA supporters, alumni, and partners.

The Alumni Achievement Award recognizes former members who have distinguished themselves in a chosen field of endeavor, whether as a paid professional or volunteer. 

The Distinguished Service Award recognizes outstanding contributions and continuing service by individuals whose primary responsibilities are directly related to the organization's programs. Examples of those eligible for the Distinguished Service Award are local and state advisers, city and state supervisors of Family and Consumer Sciences, and teacher educators.

The Honorary Membership Award recognizes persons whose professional responsibilities are not directly related to the organization but who have made outstanding contributions and provide continuing service to the national organization.
