State Farm

Invitation to Apply for a State Farm® Teen Driver Safety Grant
*Deadline to apply is April 30, 2015.  

 

State Farm continues to focus efforts on preventing teen crashes, reducing injuries and saving lives. We appreciate all that you do to protect young drivers, and invite Ohio FCCLA to apply for a $20,000 grant to support a new or existing teen driver safety program in Ohio.

Please submit funding requests in support of programs framed around sharing, not scaring. We're particularly interested in programs that amplify positive conversations and actions teens can take to keep themselves and others safe on the road.

Guidelines:

  • State Farm is no longer providing funding to programs that include scare tactics {crash reenactments, mock funerals, grim reaper appearances, etc.}.
  • Grants may not be used by the receiving entity to provide mini-grants to any other entity.
  • Since all grants are by invitation only, please do not share this information with others outside your organization.

You may access the online grant application using the appropriate link below:

Ohio FCCLA Code of Regulations

One on the items of business for the Ohio FCCLA Annual Conference business session
will be approval of the Ohio FCCLA Association Code of Regulations (former Ohio
FCCLA Constitution and Bylaws).  The Code of Regulations is posted on the Ohio
FCCLA website for your review.

This process began in the fall of 2012, with a directive from the Office of Career-
Technical Education Leadership that all five Career-Technical Education Student
Organizations have their current Constitution and Bylaws reviewed by outside legal
council to ensure compliance with non-profit organization law. The Ohio FCCLA
Association was the second Career-Technical Student Organization assigned to
execute the directive and begin the process in the Fall of 2014.  Barrett, Easterday,
Cunningham, and Eselgroth LLP law firm was contracted to complete the
scope of work.
 
In December of 2014, the 1st draft was presented to the Ohio FCCLA Board of
Directors.  A committee was established to review and make recommendations to the
Ohio FCCLA Board of Directors.  In March of 2015, the Ohio FCCLA Board approved
the final Code of Regulations document unanimously. 

After the meeting of the Ohio FCCLA Board of Directors, the proposed Code of
Regulations was posted to the Ohio FCCLA Association's website to be accessible to
the Ohio FCCLA member delegates.
