Midvale FCCLA, ID was selected to receive the 2019 National 1st Place Families Acting for Community Traffic Safety (FACTS) Award, sponsored by Ford Driving Skills for Life as a program of Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) in partnership with the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA). 
 
FACTS is a national peer-to-peer education program through which students strive to save lives through personal, vehicle, and road safety. The purpose of the FACTS award program is to encourage local chapter members to identify a specific community traffic safety problem and carry out an innovative project to address that need.  Using their Family and Consumer Sciences skills, members can take the lead in their communities and show how youth can make a difference.        
             
As the National 1st Place Chapter, the Midvale FCCLA will receive a $1,000 award, presented to them at the 2019 FCCLA National Leadership Conference, June 30 – July 4 in Anaheim, CA. The chapter will receive an additional $500 state level award for being selected as the top FACTS project in Idaho.
