AMERICAN ENTERPRISE PROJECT
Category: Prejudged Reports & Presentation
Two (2) parts: a prejudged report and a presentation. Competitors must complete both parts for award eligibility. The report should detail a project that promotes an awareness of some facet of the American enterprise system within the school and/or community. The project must be designed for chapter participation. The event is not designed to raise money for the chapter. Rather, the intent is to help members learn more about the economic system under which they live and to then share their expertise in some way with others inside and/or outside of the school.
Skills: This event recognizes FBLA chapters that develop projects within the school and/or community that increase the understanding of and support for the American enterprise system by developing an informational/educational program. The project must promote an awareness of some facet of the American enterprise system within the school and/or community and be designed for chapter participation. The report must describe chapter activities conducted between the previous State Leadership Conference and the current State Leadership Conference
Eligibility: Members representing their chapter in the presentation component of this event may also compete in up to two other individual and/or team events.
State: Each local chapter may submit one (1) entry.
National: The top four (4) places at the state competition will represent California at the National Leadership Conference. NOTE: Some SLC top-10 competitors will become eligible for the national conference as a result of drops. Make sure you get early approval from your parents to attend the National Conference so you will be in a position to say "yes" to your adviser if you are "bumped up".
