FBLA Business Achievement Awards



What are the Business Achievement Awards?

The Business Achievement Awards (BAA) is an aggressive, self-directed, results-based business and leadership program designed to compliment academics while accelerating a student's leadership skills.

The awards focus on the words surrounding the FBLA Crest: Service, Education, and Progress. There is a heavy emphasis on education with integrated classroom projects. There are four tiers to the BAA—Future, Business, Leader, and America.

"It's a great way for you or any member to get involved with local, state, and national FBLA. The activities aren't very hard and most of them you do anyway just through being in FBLA. You learn a TON about how to get involved and ways to get your other members involved too."

Kayla Carey, 2011 Region V Vice President

"Do NOT Procrastinate! Get the 'bigger' projects done before you move onto the 'smaller.' Don't just put it together last minute, make sure each item you submit is neat and organized."

Jordi Tiffany, 2011 Region I Vice President

Tips to help complete the Business Achievement Awards

  • Start early! Don’t procrastinate!
  • Make yourself a checklist and check the activities you complete as you go.
  • Set aside time to complete the activities.
  • Don’t stress out!

Don't put anything off until the last minute. If BAAs are almost due it's pointless to try and do everything in a few days. Try to have times set aside for your whole chapter to work on BAAs. It's easier when you have other people there to help you that may have already done the same things.

1) Even though it's all online print out a copy of the ones you want to do and "check" them off as you go.
2) Make yourself a calendar or timeline of the ones that have a specific time frame (FBLA Week, Virtual Business Challenge, Conferences, etc.)
3) Don't get stressed about it.
