STAR Events Updates
Staying Current with Competitive Events in Pennsylvania
Updates for the 2023-24 year will be posted as they become available.
2024 Participants in Culinary Arts will use table-side cooking. Participants in Baking and Pastry will use table-side cooking with limited oven use. Table-side cooking participants will need to bring probably two portable butane burners. The butane is supplied on-site.
Beginning with the 2023 PA State Leadership Conference, PA FCCLA will award medals only to participants who score above 70 points on the rubric score for their event. Participants who receive a score of 69.99 and below will receive a certificate, not a medal.
2023: Gold Medal (90 – 100) Silver Medal (70 – 89.99) Bronze Certificate (1 – 69.99)
It is essential that Advisers and Chapter Members reference the most recently updated National FCCLA Competitive Events Guide to address questions and issues. The Competitive Events Guide can be found in your chapter affiliation portal under the resources tab. If you have trouble finding it, contact the state facilitator.
Yearly information is posted on specific STAR Events. Participants need to check these resources on the national website and advisers can check the affiliation portal under the resources tab.
If you have questions or concerns about STAR Events, please contact STAREvents@pafccla.org
Attention STAR Events Participants
The STAR Events On-line Project Summary Form must be included with all national STAR Events. PA-only STAR Events do not require the Project Summary Form. Members can access the Project Summary Form through the student affiliation portal. Your project information may be used by FCCLA in communication with potential partners, FCCLA publications, and general use by FCCLA national headquarters, but personal information will not be included. Don't forget to print the proof of submission page at the end of the survey.
