The FBLA State Awards Program recognizes and rewards excellence in a broad range of business and career-related areas. At the State Leadership Conferences, students compete in events testing their business knowledge and skills. Top state winners are then eligible to compete for national awards at the National Leadership Conference each summer.

Each event is governed by specific guidelines and rating sheets that can be found below, and in the Competitive Events section of the Chapter Management Handbook, updated and published each August. Make sure you are using the most recent version of the guidelines to prepare for your competition. This year our state will follow the same rules as the National Competition with few exception. Please continue to look for updates of information as when we start to approach the State Leadership Conference registration openings.

Competitive events fall into three categories: individual, team, and chapter. Individual and team events focus on skills useful in leadership and career development; chapter events recognize overall achievement and performance in chapter management and growth.

The State of Texas Competitive Events are modeled and administered much like that of the National Awards Program. The link provided below is a direct link to the National FBLA page that will show you the various events that you can compete in during our State Leadership Conference.
