• LifeSmarts Champs  
    Congratulations to the 2017 State Champion LifeSmarts Team!
    West Chicago Community High School Business Education students have a rich history competing in LifeSmarts. LifeSmarts is a program of the National Consumers League that provides a competitive environment to test students knowledge in the field of Consumer Education. Students are tested in five main areas: consumer rights and responsibilities, the environment, health and safety, personal finance, and technology. Each March West Chicago Community High School hosts the Illinois State LifeSmarts competition.  Winning the state tournament allows teams to compete at the national level.  In recent years, West Chicago students have traveled to Anaheim, CA, Philadelphia, PA, Atlanta, GA, Seattle, WA, and Denver, CO representing Illinois at the national level.  
    Students and their sponsors, Ms. Blume and Mrs. Durbin, will travel to Pittsburgh, PA April 21-24, 2017 to compete in this year's National Competition.  Congratulations students and sponsors!
