Competitive Events and STAR Events Involvement in FCCLA’s Competitive Events and STAR Events programs offers members the opportunity to expand their leadership potential and develop skills for life necessary in families, communities, and workplaces. Members can demonstrate family and consumer sciences skills, career skills, and interpersonal skills through a multitude of competitive 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.
Skill Demonstration events provide opportunities for members to demonstrate college and career-ready skills in Family and Consumer Sciences and related occupations. These competitions take place at National Cluster Meetings. To obtain the event guidelines and policies, download the current Competitive Events Guide, located in the FCCLA Portal.
