Badger FCCLA Members Traveled to Washington D.C.

Two Badger High School FCCLA members (left to right) Isabel Ovalle  and Jaqueline Reyes, along with their advisor Deanna Giovingo, traveled to Washington D.C. to attend the NOYS, National Organization of Youth Safety, Youth Interactive Traffic Safety Lab. The Badger FCCLA chapter was recognized and awarded the all-expenses paid trip for the Seat Belts Save challenge they organized last year. The Seat Belts Save Challenge has three categories: best overall campaign, greatest improvement in seat belt usage, and highest seat belt use rate. The FCCLA Chapter at Badger won the highest seat belt use rate category, achieving a rate of 97.8 percent. Isabel, Jaqueline and their adviser highlighted their work to the 300 participants from high schools from the Washington D.C., Virginia and Maryland area. They also had the opportunity to manage one of the event’s lab stations, the Seat Belt Relay, a fun, interactive activity where participants win prizes while learning the importance of wearing their seat belt in "every seat, every time.” At the Youth Interactive Traffic Safety Lab, Isabel and Jaqueline were able to see firsthand the importance of peer-to-peer education. The Lab also offered hands-on activities including Auto Maintenance, Distractions, Impaired Driving, Inclement Weather, Motorcycle Safety, Pedestrian & Bicycle Safety, Railroad Tracks, Seat Belt Usage, Sharing the Road, Teen Passengers, and Work Zones.
