Two students from Wayne High School recently participated in the Nebraska Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America District 7 STAR Event Competition. This annual event was held at Wayne State College.
Alondra Vega, in the category of Professional Presentation, earned a Gold medal and is a state qualifier.
Joselyn Saltzman, in the category of Focus on Children, earned a Silver medal and is a State Qualifier
One Competitive Event available to FCCLA members is STAR Events. This stands for "Students Taking Action with Recognition." STAR Events recognize members for proficiency and achievement in chapter and individual projects, leadership skills, and career preparation. STAR Events offer individual skill development and application of learning through cooperative, individualized, and competitive activities.
Students are evaluated by judges using a rubric system and have the opportunity to earn a Gold, Silver or Bronze rating. The top two finishers in each event level, who earn a Silver or Gold rating, qualify to compete at the state competition, which will be hosted as part of the State Leadership Conference.
Alondra and Joselyn will compete at the Nebraska State FCCLA STAR Competition in April.
