|Volunteers Are Crucial to Our Success|
STAR Events cannot happen without people in place to help run events and serve as evaluators. Each chapter that enters students into STAR Events competition at the state level is required to provide at least one qualified individual to serve as an evaluator. The virtual competition in 2021 provides a unique opportunity for alumni members, administrators, other teachers, and any other supporters all across the country to serve. Volunteer sign-ups for STAR Events can be done on your online conference registration (either the chapter advisers already listed, or add other volunteers as “guests”), or you can use the form/s available by clicking the red text below.
