All FCCLA STAR Participants Qualify for State!

March 02, 2021

By: Tanyn Larson, a freshman at Leigh High School


After months of hard work and preparation, on February 3rd, 14 students from both Leigh and Clarkson participated in the annual FCCLA STAR event. This year, the contest was virtual.  The videos from each event needed to be submitted by February 3rd, and then they received the results on February 17th. The virtual event was hosted by Twin River.

STAR stands for Students Taking Action with Recognition.  FCCLA members who participated in an event were evaluated by a judge who was sent their video, who then filled out a rubric to determine whether they received a gold, silver, or bronze. 

To qualify for state, entrants must be one of the top two teams in their category. In an outstanding showing by the Clarkson-Leigh chapter, all nine events who participated qualified for State! 

The following participated in Level 1—7th and 8th graders: Brynn Settje and Ella Urban—Event Management, Silver; and Izabel Hollatz and Baylee Settje—Focus on Children 1, Gold

The following participated in Level 2—freshman and sophomores: Tanyn Larson and Gracie Eisenmann—National Programs in Action 2, Gold: Macy Clausen and Cassi Rayback—Focus on Children 2, Gold: and Dee Rivera—Career Investigation, Silver.

The following participated in Level 3—juniors and seniors: Cassidy Hoffman, Job Interview, Gold: Emily Loseke, National Programs in Action 3, Gold: Natalie Brabec, Nutrition and Wellness, Silver: and Bailey Lemberg and Mitchel Beeson—Sports Nutrition, Gold. 

FCCLA advisor Mrs. Megan HIllen said, “I am so proud of each of the members that completed a STAR project. All nine entries qualified for the state competition and represented our chapter, school, and community well at our district competition.”
