For the first-time since Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) was founded in 1945, members competed in Students Taking Action with Recognition (STAR) Events on the national level virtually.
Nearly 3,000 FCCLA members from across the country participated in STAR Events this past June. All STAR Event competitors were recognized for their accomplishments at FCCLA’s Virtual National Leadership Conference, July 7-9, 2020.
STAR Events are Competitive Events in which members are recognized for their proficiency and achievement in chapter and individual projects, leadership skills, and career preparation.
STAR Events allow student to compete individually or as a team. There are more than 30 STAR Events students can choose to compete in, all which recognize participants who demonstrate their knowledge, skills, and abilities to actively identify an issue concerning families, careers, or communities, research the topic, and develop and implement a project to advocate for positive change.
Both youth and adults work together in managing the events and serving as evaluators of the participants. STAR Events aim to support student development of knowledge and skills by enhancing the classroom experience and Career Pathway initiatives by equipping students with employable skills and industry insights needed to thrive in the 21st century.
In order to advance to the national level in a STAR Event, members first compete at the region/district and state level.
Olivia Brown, Alana Kendrick and Brennan Carpenter competed in Interpersonal Communications and was awarded a GOLD medal in their STAR Event category at the 2020 Virtual National Leadership Conference.
Rhegan Morgan competed in the Job Interview competition as was awarded a SILVER medal in the level 2 STAR Event category.
“This was such an opportunity for our young people to be able to compete at the national level on projects they completed during the school year right here in our own community. I am extremely proud of these students and their accomplishments,” said Clinta Smith, Caney FCCLA adviser.
