The Eleventh Annual STAR Program Year Has Begun!
Eligibility Period: 4/1/17 thru 3/31/18

The Safety Training Awards Recognition (STAR) Program is a great innovative effort by Painters’ District Council No. 14 and it’s employer partners, Chicago PDCA/FCA, and MWCC, working through the JATC/DFTC School to create fresh incentives for Safety Training and Continuing Education within the Union workforce.

STAR Program requires at least 800 consecutive hours of work to qualify for inclusion in the program, offering the opportunity to win very substantial prizes. A minimum of 10 credits of safety training is worth one ticket and 30 additional credits safety and/or skills classes will give you one additional ticket for drawings.  If this is your first class, full Social Security Number is required for star credit

At the end of the year, a banquet is held for the participants. All qualified participants will be entered into a drawing to win a variety of prizes, one of which is a vehicle (one prize per participant). In addition, every attendee will receive a valuable door prize.
