2022 NATIONAL LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE

Judging

Register to Judge!

Thank you for your interest in judging! Our incredible young leaders are excited to show you the culmination of their efforts.

The FBLA-PBL National Awards Program, also known as competitive events, recognizes and rewards excellence in a broad range of business and career-related areas. FBLA-PBL competitive events also prepare students for successful careers in business by providing opportunities to apply classroom concepts in a workforce-simulated competitive environment.

This year, FBLA-PBL is back to the in-person conference! For the most part, this means that volunteer judging will be done on-site, but there will be a small sampling of virtual judging.

Virtual judging opportunities will be as follows:

  • All pre-judged events
  • Job Interview and Sales Presentation
    • FBLA and PBL
    • Preliminary round only

Time commitment: Judges should anticipate 3.5-5 hours of judging time per competitive event. Some events will be pre-submitted, allowing for a judge to review the entries over a two-week period at their convenience. Most events will be live at a prescheduled time on a specific day; these events will begin at either 7:30 AM CDT or 12:30 PM CDT.

For more specific information, please reach out to our Judges’ Coordinator, Aric Mills, at amills@fbla.org.
