Currently, FCCLA members are participating in STAR events (Students Taking Action with Recognition), which are held every first Thursday of the month in Ms. Cash’s (Life Skills) room.
FCCLA members began their STAR events in school on September 22, but community service and other service projects done over the summer can count for a STAR event.
Club members will compete on January 28.
Some members participate in the FCCLA business meetings for their event. “Members decide things that need to be voted on, such as community service projects or t-shirts,” Cash said.
Members who pay $20 are eligible to participate in STAR events – it also costs an additional $20 to participate in regionals and $150 if a member makes it into state.
“I thought it would be fun to participate in STAR events because it would look good on an application or résumé,” said member Madison Watson (10).
