Beginning in 2014, the National Youth & Education Committee for Ducks Unlimited created and implemented the DU Varsity All-Stars program; a competition that features the top high school chapters from across the country based on dollars raised throughout the year. 
 
In 2018, the National Youth & Education Committee expanded the competition for Varsity chapters. A tiered system, that mirrored DU’s local adult chapter recognition program, was established. With the new system, chapters now have a definitive baseline to qualify for the Varsity All-Stars program. In the inaugural year of the new system, 15 high school chapters qualified based on the criteria listed below:

  • Event Income from all events (minimum $2,500 in event income to qualify)
  • Chapter Silent Bid Auction Income
  • Donor Directed Major Gifts

Through this new program the chapters now can qualify for the following Specific Recognition Levels:

  • $30,000+, Gold All-Star
  • $20,000-$29,999, Silver All-Star
  • $10,000-$19,999, Bronze All-Star

"I am excited to see many of our varsity programs rebound as they were able to begin to hold events again in 2022," said Justin Aycock, Manager of Ducks Unlimited's Youth Engagement Programs. "I am very proud of the efforts from our Varsity All-Star’s and for all the chapters within the DU Varsity program."
