Home Safe Home: The Competitive Countdown
Home to many, offers a feeling of safety and comfort, but in the households of domestic violence situations, there is hardly a home sweet home, kind of feeling. How could there be when there are toxic emotions or abuse?
Starting in October and ending in March, Washington FCCLA is hosting monthly challenges that will encourage members to learn about child abuse and domestic violence signs, resources, and how best to cope or handle stressful family circumstances. These challenges span from snapping a family picture to reading a book and making a connection to how you could make a difference in the world around you.
On the first of every month, an announcement will go out on Washington FCCLA’s social media, where members will have the opportunity to compete for awesome prizes. I repeat, “AWESOME PRIZES”! The window for entering will last all month, and the winner will be selected and announced the following week. These challenges will count us down to the State Leadership Conference where winners will get special recognition and collect their prizes on the state stage!!!
To participate, you can email your entry directly to firstname.lastname@example.org (that’s me) and I will send you a confirmation email, or you can post your entry on Instagram and tag @washingtonfccla and @aly_ssa.lloyd where we will all get a look at your amazing projects throughout the year.
Hopefully, these challenges will push you to think and learn about what it means to have a healthy relationship and what to factor into your current and future family bonds. Participants will have the opportunity to get creative, all the while gaining new and valuable information that hopefully will inspire a lifetime of safe decisions and create the Home Safe Home kind of feeling.
I look forward to seeing all of your imaginative ideas and hearing insights on what you learn along the way. If you have any questions, or just want to share something you gained feel free to email me.
