MADISON - Students from around the state were in Madison on Feb. 11 for Career and Technical Student Organization Government Day, an event organized by a partnership of Wisconsin career and technical education student organizations.

FCCLA State Officer Olivia Woodmansee, along with five CTSO members, represented New Glarus High School FCCLA. Students learned about civic leadership and citizenship while meeting with and asking questions of legislators and government officials on career and workforce topics. More than 60 student state officers from across Wisconsin attended the event.

Wisconsin's career and technical student organizations have a long and proud tradition of serving students. By participating in these organizations and events like CTSO Government Day, students learn about citizenship, teamwork and other leadership skills that will help them graduate from high school ready for both college and careers.

The six career and technical student organizations are DECA, an association of marketing students; FBLA, an association of business students; FCCLA, an association of family and consumer science students; FFA, an association of agriculture education students; HOSA, an association of health science students; and Skills USA, an association of technology education students.

CTSOs are the intra-curricular student organizations that enhance the career and technical instruction offered in more than 400 Wisconsin high schools. These groups help students develop civic, social and technical skills for their future careers.
