HACKETTSTOWN, NJ — The National Kitchen & Bath Assn. (NKBA), a non-profit trade association with more than 40,000 members, on Dec. 16 announced its sponsorship of this year’s FCCLA Interior Design Star Event, a design competition for students hosted by Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA), a national student organization with over 220,000 teenage members.

To promote the event and future careers in the industry, NKBA Academic Relations Coordinator Sally Spencer presented Careers in Kitchen and Bath at FCCLA’s regional conferences in Dallas and Jacksonville. More than 7,000 FCCLA chapter advisors will receive the video Careers in Kitchen and Bath to inform students about the many lucrative, rewarding careers in the kitchen and bath industry, according to the NKBA.

“The NKBA is proud to sponsor the FCCLA Interior Design Star Event,” said Spencer. “I was pleased to have the opportunity to address America’s future interior designers to encourage them to participate in the event and to let them know about the benefits of pursuing rewarding careers in kitchen and bath design.”

The NKBA hopes that the sponsorship of the Star Event Interior Design competition will give students a greater awareness of careers in the kitchen and bath industry, as well as colleges and universities with NKBA-accredited kitchen and bath design programs, while also helping students learn to design using the NKBA Planning Guidelines.
