Brookland Middle School student McKenna Slough will put her research and presentation skills to the test when she explains her sports nutrition project to judges at the national conference of Family, Career and Community Leaders of America. The conference is an annual meeting of the organization, a national nonprofit career and technical group for students enrolled in family and consumer sciences. The conference is being held in Washington, D.C., July 5-9.

The students will take part in leadership training workshops; lobby their congressional representatives on behalf of career and technical education; and compete in such areas as public speaking, presentations and job interviews.
