Through participation in Competitive Events, FCCLA members gain employable skills and industry insight needed to thrive in the 21st Century. Members may choose from 50+ Competitive Events which apply skills and knowledge gained through Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS) education. Competitive Events set members up for career success as members explore Career Pathways and address important personal, work, and societal issues through competing on the region/district, state, and national level.

STAR Studios, monthly and/or quarterly competitive workshops, are offered to all competitors. STAR Studios are an opportunity for members to work on their competition projects with the support of the adviser and other members. STAR Studios are offered after school or in the evenings in the adviser's classroom.
