STAR Events (Students Taking Action With Recognition) are competitive events that allow members to compete in individual or team events. Participants must receive a “Gold” rating and a score of at least 90 at Regional competitions to move on to the State Competition. At State, the top rated 1st and 2nd place “Gold Medal” individual or team/s per event (according to the current STAR Event Guide) move on to National Competition.
Competitions take place at the Regional level in January and at the State level in the spring at the State Leadership Conference. Members compete at the National level at the National Leadership Conference in July.
There are currently 29 STAR Events and 2 On-line Events. Make sure you download the most current copy of the Competitive Events guide from your On-line Affiliation Portal.

STAR EVENTS NEWSLETTER:
The STAR Events Newsletter will be available in November, 2017.
ON-LINE PROJECT SUMMARY FORM:
The Online Project Summary Form is an online, survey-like form that STAR Event participants complete prior to their first competition. Once participants complete the online form, they will receive instructions online to print the proof of submission page and to have it signed by the chapter adviser. This form can then be placed in a file folder, portfolio, display, or scanned for inclusion in an electronic portfolio. It is the responsibility of the participant to include this proof of submission page in their event materials. This form will be found on the Adviser’s Affiliation Portal.
STATE AND NATIONAL PARTICIPANT ORIENTATION:
At the State level, there will be a form given to all participants at the STAR Event Participant Orientation which, when signed and presented to the room consultant at the participant’s event, will serve as verification of attending orientation. There will be no participant sign-in prior to Orientation at State STAR Events on Wednesday morning.
National FCCLA has implemented online orientation for STAR Event participants. Those teams representing Washington at Nationals will go online for their orientation and print off a verification sheet to turn into their evaluators.
SAMPLE CASE STUDIES
STAR Events Demonstration Videos
At the National Leadership Conference, STAR Events participants/teams graciously videotaped their presentations so that chapters and advisers could use them the videos to learn more about STAR Events. These videos are available on FCCLA’s YouTube and SchoolTube channels https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCo9mInpzFRhgYo8VJpnjIGQ
STAR Events Resources and Scenarios
The STAR Events Resources page, on your Adviser’s Affiliation Portal contains scenarios, topics, templates, and other resources for STAR Events. It is important that members use the current year’s (2017-18) scenario or topic when preparing for STAR Events.
