The Alliance Chapter of FCCLA competed at Districts at the Western Nebraska Community College Campus in Scottsbluff on Wednesday, January 5. A total of 13 members from Alliance competed against the rest of District 12, which includes Scottsbluff, Hemingford, Chase County and Garden County in Students Taking Action with Recognition (STAR) Projects. Six Alliance members also ran for District Office. 

STAR Projects take many months to complete and students are able to compete on the district level, state level and even the national level. There are over 30 different STAR Projects to choose from, each one helping students prepare for life after high school, by teaching time management and teamwork. After presenting projects to judges, students are given either a gold, silver or bronze medal. To qualify for state, a participant needs to receive a gold or silver medal.
