Students Taking Action with Recognition
(STAR) Events are Competitive Events in which members compete at the region/district, state, and national level and are recognized for proficiency and achievement in chapter and individual projects, leadership skills, and career preparation. STAR Events allow students 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.

STAR Events offer individual skill development and application of learning through the following activities:

  • Cooperative - teams work to accomplish specific goals
  • Individualized - an individual member works alone to accomplish specific goals
  • Competitive - individual or team performance is measured by an established set of criteria
