Projects should be completed during the current club year. Members wishing to apply for Ambassador and then All-Star must complete their project before applying in April. It is recommended that members complete their Emerald Star, then the following year complete their Ambassador, and then the following year apply for the County Level All-Star. However, members may complete their Emerald Star and Ambassador during the same year if the member feels their schedule will allow.
