2016-17 Competitive Events Guide

Conference season is upon us! Please make sure you and your students are referring to these resources when preparing for the 2016-17 district and state STAR events.  Please email Pamela Sieffert at Pamela.Sieffert@tn.gov if you have any questions.

Tennessee FCCLA State Officer Application 

The Tennessee FCCLA State Officer Application is now available for students interested in serving FCCLA as a State Officer. Tennessee FCCLA encourages all dynamic, leading, FCCLA members to apply! You can find the application here

As an adviser, you will play an important role in the state officer candidate's experience. It is very important that you be supportive and encouraging to a student that has expressed interest, or to whom you have identified as a qualified and deserving individual. 

Duties during the officer's year of duty are outlined in the state officer application. 

National Online STAR Events Registration Opens Dec. 1.

Registration for the two Online STAR Events, Digital Stories for Change and FCCLA Chapter Website, will be open on Dec. 1 in the FCCLA Portal. The cost for each participant is $20.
