STAR Events

STAR Events (Students Taking Action with Recognition) are competitive events in which members are recognized for proficiency and achievement in chapter and individual projects, leadership skills, and career preparation. STAR Events offer individual skill development and application of learning through the following activities:

  • Cooperative - teams work to accomplish specific goals
  • Individualized - an individual member works alone to accomplish specific goals
  • Competitive - individual or team performance measured by an established set of criteria.

STAR Events are grouped into Foundational, Leadership, Career Focused, and Online Events.

STAR Events Demonstration Videos

During the 2013 National Leadership Conference, 48 STAR Events demonstrations were videotaped. These videos are available on the FCCLA YouTube and SchoolTube channels. Please note that the contents of these videos may or may not meet all of the current requirements of the events as outlined in the current 2017-2018 Competitive Events Guide, but can serve as a starting point for members new to STAR Events.
