Vice President of Competitive Events, Austin Gese













Hey Washington State FCCLA! My name is Austin Gese and I am your 2016-2017 Vice-President of Competitive Events. I am currently a senior at South Kitsap High School located in Region 1. I am glad to be given this opportunity to help promote and inform you about FCCLA’s Competitive Events for this year!

Currently, there are four types of competitive events: Skill Demonstration Events, Students Taking Action with Recognition (STAR) Events, FCCLA/Life Skills Knowledge Bowl, and even Online Events. Each event gives students a wonderful chance to help sharpen and show off their Family and Consumer Science skills and knowledge, which can be used in their family, career, or community.

This year, I hope to continue the promotion of competitive events in Washington state, along with helping students be better prepared for their STAR Event. By being bettered prepared, every student can have a chance to win gold!

Skill Demonstration Events and the first knowledge bowl competition, will take place at our National Cluster meetings this November. See for dates and location
