An important component of the California FCCLA leadership program is career development related to Home Economics Careers and Technology. Participation in the STAR Events gives Family and Consumer Studies students the confidence, motivation, and experience to be successful in the workplace. The STAR Events are contests in 23 career-related areas that prepare members of the California FCCLA for the world of work. These events extend classroom learning and give students recognition and a sense of achievement while developing skills for future careers.
Individual, team, and chapter events are offered to students in high school, junior high school, or middle school. Level 3 participants include those in grades 11-12 and ROCP, level 2 participants are in grades 9-10, level 1 participants are in grades 6-8. Members compete at various levels - qualifying, state, and in some cases national finals.
Corporations, institutions and individuals sponsor various events with cash, scholarships and prizes. Each year, students are presented awards that total more than $90,000 in value. Contributors develop a sense of pride in knowing they have become partners with education in preparing students for living and working in the 21st century.
