FBLA-Middle Level Competitive Recognition

Middle and junior high school school students can earn recognition and awards by competing in business and career-related academic competitions.

Competitive recognitions fall into three categories:

  • Individual

  • Team

  • Chapter

Individual and Team events focus on leadership and career development skills, such as public speaking, presentation, and business writing. In addition, students demonstrate skill-specific competencies.

Chapter events recognize overall achievement in managing and growing an FBLA-Middle Level chapter. FBLA-Middle Level chapters may earn the Outstanding Chapter Award of Merit. Chapters receiving this recognition are nominated by their state.
