An important component of the California FCCLA leadership program is career development related to Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS). The STAR Events are contests in 23 career-related areas that prepare members of the California FCCLA for the world of work. These events extend classroom learning and give students recognition and a sense of achievement while developing skills for future careers.

Individual, team, and chapter events are offered to students in high school, junior high school, or middle school. Level 3 participants include those in grades 11-12 and ROCP, level 2 participants are in grades 9-10, level 1 participants are in grades 6-8. Members compete at various levels - qualifying, state, and in some cases national finals.

Corporations, institutions and individuals sponsor various events with cash, scholarships and prizes. Each year, students are presented awards that total more than $90,000 in value. Contributors develop a sense of pride in knowing they have become partners with education in preparing students for living and working in the 21st century.
