  • CALIFORNIA FUTURE BUSINESS LEADERS OF AMERICA (FBLA)
    CALIFORNIA AWARDS PROGRAM (CAP)

    COMPETITIVE EVENTS FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS 

    The FBLA mission is to prepare students for successful careers in business through support for curriculum  development and innovative assessment tools. To help meet that charge, the FBLA Competitive Events Program has been developed and made available to local and state chapters for use in assessing students in the various knowledge, skills, and abilities that make up today's business education curriculum. FBLA competitive events prepare students for successful careers in a broad range of business and career-related areas. The competitive event guidelines and competencies are created for competitors, advisers and judges.

    FBLA members are encouraged to participate in the California Awards Program (CAP) for competition and recognition offered annually at the section, state and national leadership conferences. Have a question on the California Awards Program? Please email Manuel Rapada at mrapada@cafbla.org
