[UPDATE: IMPLEMENTED] "Best Of" FBLA-PBL States!

We all know how awesome our own states are (FBLA and/or PBL) but we may not know how awesome other states are. Let's celebrate them with a little friendly competition (beyond the traditional Competitive Events program). The "Best Of" could recgonize the top state websites, PR material, innovative program, BAA participants, etc. This could be an yearly or once-every-two years type of program.

Investments Objective Tests

With people now retiring later and later because of the lack of money, I believe a competitive event focusing on different types of investments could be a game changer for the "Future Business Leaders of America." The test can include investments vehicles from the lower risk bonds, money market accounts, and annuities, to the higher risk stocks, options, futures, and forex (Foreign Exchange). The way to grade the skills ...more »

National Monopoly Tournament

In Georgia FBLA there is a monopoly tournament that concludes at the state level. I believe by taking the winning team from each state there could be a massive game of monopoly played at nationals to see who is the best in the nation. I believe this will give students the opportunity to learn more related to money and making successful deals, but would also be a fun event at nationals!
