The FBLA Business Achievement Awards (BAA) is an intensive leadership development program that recognizes FBLA members for achievements in a variety of career-related projects, goals, and programs. High school students create a portfolio of real-world accomplishments and develop their business and leadership skills across four levels: FutureBusinessLeader, and America.

Community Service Awards

The Community Service Awards (CSA) recognize members with extraordinary commitment to community service. It has three levels:

  • CSA Community (50 hours)
  • CSA Service (200 hours)
  • CSA Achievement (500 hours)

Hours for the CSA are cumulative and build throughout a student’s FBLA career.

The Community and Service award winners will receive an online certificate of recognition, to be printed when an entry is submitted by the adviser. The CSA Achievement award winners will be awarded a pin at the National Leadership Conference.

The chapter adviser must register the student for the Community Service Awards. An email will be sent to the adviser containing the student’s login credentials. When a student logs hours equal to the requirements for a CSA Award, the adviser will login to the adviser area of the CSA, review the student’s hours and will find a link to submit the award. CSA Community and Service Awards must be submitted by March 1. The CSA Achievement Award must be submitted no later than April 25. Students may continue logging hours after the submission deadline, but the award levels reached may not be submitted until August 1 of the next school year once submission closes for the current school year.
