(Check Purchased Publications under the Resources tab.) For more information about FCCLA’S F.A.C.T.S. national program, visit www.fcclainc.org.

In addition to the $1,000 stipend, four projects will be selected as the most outstanding and will be awarded a $2,500 cash prize each at Ohio FCCLA’s State Leadership Conference and will be considered for additional state and national F.A.C.T.S. program awards.
