How to Choose Your Event

Competitive events play an integral role in the mission of FBLA‐PBL. They prepare students for successful careers in business by providing opportunities to apply classroom concepts in a workforce‐simulated competitive environment. Members compete to demonstrate career competencies, business knowledge, and job skills as well as expand leadership skills, display competitive spirit, receive recognition for achievement, travel, and network.
