Competitive Events

FBLA’s Awards Program and Recognition Events honor and reward excellence in a broad range of business and career-related areas.

Throughout the year, students participate in a variety of activities to build their business leadership skills. Each spring, students compete in events testing their business knowledge and skills. Students who complete awards programs and place highest in competitive events are recognized at the annual spring State Leadership Conference (SLC). Top state winners are then eligible to compete for national awards at the National Leadership Conference (NLC) each summer.

Massachusetts FBLA uses a modified event list, meaning not all national events are available at the SLC and some event guidelines may slightly differ at the NLC. Make sure you are using the most recent edition and correct version of the guidelines to prepare for your competition. State guidelines are distributed to chapters annually as part of conference information materials. National guidelines are available on the national website.
