Awards/Recognition

Missouri FBLA-PBL recognizes the contributions of members, advisers, businesspersons, and educators through a variety of awards and recognition programs.

Administrator of the Year

Administrators support our association by providing support to educators, encouraging activity in career and technical education, and providing funding to local chapters.  Each chapter may nominate one administrator at their local school for recognition at SLC.

Chapter of the Year

The Chapter of the Year program rewards our local chapters who have gone the extra mile to become involved in their communities, with Missouri and National FBLA-PBL, and work to improve their business skills.

Chapters in Missouri FBLA-PBL who complete Chapter of the Year and submit a Local Chapter Annual Business Report are automatically eligible for the Gold Seal Chapter Award of Merit, which recognizes the top 15% of chapters.

Submission Form

Missouri FBLA-PBL uses Judgify, an online reporting and rating system, to manage the Chapter of the Year program.  Chapters should create one account under an adviser email address.  The chapter may log back in throughout the year and interact with the form online, uploading files and adjusting point values.  The form will automatically close on February 10, 2018 at 5:00pm.  Submissions must be completed and submitted by this time.

Note: Missouri FBLA-PBL has no control over your account and cannot retrieve your password for you.  We highly recommend a generic password like “service” to ensure you don’t lose access to your account.  Only one account may be used per chapter, and duplicate submissions will automatically be removed from the system with no points.
