Pictured are from left Emily Faulkenberry, Alexa Carreon, Taryn Blankenship, Josie Dobbins, Anabel Ulloa, and Olivia Rutledge, Marietta FCCLA members who recently competed in District STAR Events and advanced to state competition.

Six Marietta FCCLA members competed in Virtual District STAR Events on November 30-December 4th. 

Although members are more familiar with competing in front of judges, this year they competed in front of a camera, a difficult task for many.

First place members advance to the State STAR Events in March. Depending on scores, some second-place winners also advance.

Competing from Marietta were Olivia Rutledge, 8th grade, Children's Literature Level 1, 1st place; Taryn Blankenship, 8th grade, Creed Speaking and Interpretation Level 1, 1st place; Alexa Carreon, 9th grade, Creed Speaking and Interpretation Level 2, 2nd place and advancing to state; Josie Dobbins, 8th grade, New Member Facts Level 1, 2nd place; Anabel Ulloa, 10th grade, New Member Facts Level 2, 1st place; and Emily Faulkenberry, 8th grade, Repurpose and Redesign Level 1, 1st place.
