Computer Production Event Administration

Computer production events will be administered by an impartial administrator or the adviser at the local
level. District computer production events will be mailed to the Vice President/Adviser of their District. See
contact sheet of the Official District Leadership Packet. State Computer Production events will be mailed to
Colorado FBLA, 9101 E. Lowry Blvd., Denver, CO 80230

The computer production events will be administered to district participants between January 10 and
January 21 with a January 21, 2011 RECEIVED deadline to the State Vice President of your District.
Those qualifying for the State Leadership Conference will be tested between March 7 and March 18 with a
March 18 RECEIVED deadline to the Colorado FBLA Office.

Students participating in the production events will be required to take an online knowledge test at their
home school for the District Conference. The objective test for the State Leadership Conference will be
taken on site at the State Conference.

Due to the overwhelming quantity of computer production grading, the following guidelines will be
implemented at the district and state level.

Preparing for Competition

            The FBLA-PBL National Awards Program is a very exciting part of the FBLA-PBL year. Each
             state is allowed to send two to three representative(s) in each event to the National Leadership
             Conference. Members prepare for months for the opportunity to shine nationally. The
             knowledge, experience, and motivation gained from competing makes every participant a winner.

            Not everyone can go to the National Leadership Conference and take home an award. However,
             members can increase their chances by working with their advisers to ensure careful advanced
             preparation, adherence to all relevant guidelines and rules, and by following these tips:

Comply with entry procedures and regulations.
          Check the status of membership dues.
          Ensure that the entry forms are completed properly and submitted by the published deadline. This
           is the responsibility of the local adviser for district and state competitions and the state adviser for
           national events.

Be familiar with the event guidelines.
          Check the current edition of the National Competitive Event Handbook and Colorado Competitive
           Event Chapter Management Handbook for a complete listing of individual, team, and chapter
           events. Many events have been modified at the District Leadership Conference. Please refer to
           this Colorado Competitive Event Handbook.
          Make copies of the appropriate guidelines and rating sheets.
          Become completely familiar with the procedures to be followed in administering the event.
          Determine from the rating sheets and guidelines exactly what areas will be judged.

Identify and assemble needed resources.
          Obtain a variety of textbooks on your subject matter to study. FBLA-PBL provides a study guide
           with preparation tips and sample questions through the FBLA-PBL MarketPlace.
          Contact former and current chapter members who have entered this event in previous years.
          Find mentors and other experts who can help you prepare.

Prepare for the competition.
          Where appropriate, involve faculty, other members, advisory committee members, and business
           people. These are excellent resources–use them!!
          Practice makes perfect! Try to recreate as realistically as possible the conditions under which the
           competition will take place.

Comply with competition regulations.
          Be familiar with the information to be provided and the deadlines to be met.
          Make sure that copies of materials to be submitted to judges are error-free and that they are
           submitted in the proper format.
          Bring several No.2 pencils and erasers.




Colorado Competitive Events 2010-2011
Do the best you can and enjoy!
Chapter advisers are also encouraged to keep the following points in mind as they prepare their students
for participation in the Colorado and National Awards Program Competitive Events:

       Competitive events are excellent motivating devices; they help to instill the desire to learn and to
        achieve.
       To be the best generally requires innate ability, high motivation, and many hours of hard work.
       Travel and interaction with students from other schools are tremendous learning opportunities for
        students.
       Competitive events can be helpful in building school spirit and in publicizing a business program.
       Competitive events should not be used to determine curricula, teaching methodology, time spent on
        class activities, textbooks to be used, grading procedures, or for teacher evaluation.
       Too much effort should not be given to trying to compile test files by securing copies of previous
        tests and/or having competitors make copious notes following their events.
       Excessive class time should not be spent on areas covered in competitive events at the expense of
        other subject matter that should be taught.
       Delaying contestant selection as long as possible is encouraged so that more students are striving
        for mastery or excellence in a particular area.
       A teacher’s competence should not be judged by the number of winners produced in a period of
        time. A teacher is not an excellent teacher simply because a student wins a competitive event any
        more than a teacher is a poor teacher because a student does not win.
       Likewise, the success of a local chapter should not be determined strictly by the performance of its
        members in competitive events. While an important element of the overall FBLA-PBL program,
        competitive events are just that–a part. Many activities and programs work together to build a
        successful chapter.
       Teachers should recognize the value of competitive events, maintain a professional attitude
        towards the events, and keep them in proper perspective!
       Any chapter forms or reports not abiding by the event guidelines or deadline dates may be
        disqualified at the district and state leadership conferences.
