The Miles Career and Technical Education (CTE) Project of the Week is “Priceless.” This project is about teens developing a positive self-image and realizing that they are priceless. The activities for this project included sticky notes put on the walls of restrooms with positive reinforcers written on them, two music videos with self-image as the theme presented and discussed in Family and Consumer Science classes, and a photo booth where students took selfies and posted them on Instagram at #milesfccla#priceless. Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) members responsible for this worthwhile project are Mirella Ornellas, Tori Redman and Nicole Rouse. As members of FCCLA, they will enter their project in the Spotlight on Projects competition at the Region II FCCLA Meeting this week.
