  • CALIFORNIA FUTURE BUSINESS LEADERS OF AMERICA (FBLA)

    COMPETITIVE EVENTS

     

    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 Copetitive Events Program has ben developed and make 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.

    The California Awards Program, also known as competitive events, recognizes and rewards excellence in a broad range of business and career-related areas. FBLA competitive events also prepare students for successful careers in business by providing opportunities to apply classroom concepts in a workforce-simulated competitive environment, while fostering a bit of competitive spirit! The competitive event guidelines and competencies that follow were 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. Membership dues must be paid in full in order to register for competition.
    The California Awards Program (CAP) Committee oversees California FBLA Competitive Events. The CAP Committee Members meet annually to review the California Awards Program. Contact your Section Representative of the CAP Committee.
