Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) is a dynamic and effective national student organization that helps young men and women become leaders and address important personal, family, work and societal issues through Family and Consumer Sciences Education as determined by the state department of education. FCCLA has over 150,000 members and more than 5,300 chapters from 48 state associations, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. The organization has involved more than 10 million people since its founding in 1945.
FCCLA: The Ultimate Leadership Experience is unique among youth organizations because its programs are planned and run by members. It is the only career and technical in-school student organization with the family as its central focus. Participation in national programs and chapter activities helps members become strong leaders in their families, careers, and communities.

LifeSmarts, established in 1994, is a program of the National Consumers League, the nation’s pioneering consumer organization. LifeSmarts, the ultimate consumer challenge, is an educational opportunity for students in 6th-12th grade. This competition prepares students to enter the real world as smart adult consumers. Participants focus on five key topic areas: consumer rights and responsibilities, the environment, health and safety, personal finance, and technology.
LifeSmarts stays current — expanding its content, competitions, and consumer knowledge. LifeSmarts complements the curriculum already in place in middle- and high-schools and can be used as an activity for classes, groups, clubs, and community organizations. LifeSmarts also aligns with national education standards.
Students who participate in the program begin competition online. The highest-scoring teams are invited to in-person live state championships. State-wide competitions are locally coordinated by state partnering organizations and agencies. In states without a state coordinator, NCL hosts a virtual state championship. State winners are invited to the National LifeSmarts Championship held in a different city every April.2020 Colorado State ChampionsKaleb AuDanielle BrownEmily SipesAlyson DotyDanylo Semakov
