can help provide Ronald McDonald House families a place to stay while they are away from home
and help make it possible for more families to help their children heal.

Chapters collect can tabs and place them in gallon milk jugs. Can tabs should be turned in to your
local Ronald McDonald House or they may be turned in at State Conference. Chapters who deliver

SCHOLARSHIP INFORMATION & APPLICATIONS                                            APPENDIX I

                                Dr. Bill Radcliff Scholarship
The Dr. Bill Radcliff Scholarship was established to assist students who intend to pursue a four-
year college program in the Business and Information Technology field.

This State Conference Scholarship will be awarded at the FBLA State Leadership Conference to
one of the nine regional Dr. Bill Radcliff Scholarship winners. The amounts for the scholarship will
be determined by the State Executive Committee and will be based on the amount of money in the
Scholarship Fund. The scholarship stipends are paid on a one-time basis to the registrar or
admission's office of the institution or college you plan to attend and are non-renewable. The
scholarship must be used during the year for which it was presented, or it will be awarded to the
alternate winner.

Since this event is state only, the participant does not advance to the National Leadership
Conference.

                                  Jared Bryant Scholarship
The Jared Bryant Scholarship was established to assist students who do not intend to pursue a
four-year Business and Information Technology curriculum but do plan further training beyond high
school. This education could include business college, vocational school, or one- or two-year
programs at a college or university.

This Scholarship will be awarded to the winner at the FBLA State Leadership Conference. The
amounts for each scholarship will be determined by the State Executive Committee and will be
based on the amount of money in the Scholarship Fund. The scholarship stipends are paid on a
one-time basis to the registrar or admission's office of the institution or college you plan to attend
and are non-renewable. The scholarship must be used during the year for which it was presented,
or it will be awarded to the alternate winner.

             Andy Vanosdale Microsoft Technology Scholarship
The Technology Scholarship was established to assist students who intend to pursue a four-year
college program in an engineering or computer science field.

This Scholarship will be awarded to the winner at the FBLA State Leadership Conference. The
amounts for the scholarship will be determined by the State Executive Committee and will be
based on the amount of money in the Scholarship fund. The Scholarship stipends are paid four
times over four years to the registrar or admission’s office of the institution or college the student
plans to attend. The Scholarship is renewable, but contingent upon the following guidelines: the
student must have declared an engineering or computer science major with the college, maintain a
declaration in an engineering or computer science major, and maintain a 2.0 out of a 4.0 (or 3.0
out of a 5.0) grade point average at the end of each year. The State Executive Committee
recognizes that some colleges do not allow a student to declare an engineering or computer
science major without taking prerequisite courses. The recipient will receive the first year’s stipend.
If, however, the recipient is unable to declare an engineering or computer science major at the
beginning of the second year, the remaining Scholarship funds will be returned back to the fund
and used for future recipients. The recipient will submit a copy of his/her transcript to the State
Executive Council at the end of each semester for verification of requirements. The State
Executive Council reserves the right to revoke the Scholarship for any reason.

All rates are subject to 9.25% sales tax and 8% occupancy tax unless a tax exempt form is
submitted and lodging is paid by school check or school credit card. Please mail your tax exempt
form directly to the hotel noted on your reservation. The tax exempt form exempts the group
from sales tax ONLY, not the 8% occupancy tax. You must include the 8% occupancy tax
per day per room when you are requesting a check from your school or organization.

The Tennessee Association of Future Business Leaders of America requests that you please reserve rooms
at the designated Future Business Leaders of America hotels listed. These hotels have given Tennessee
FBLA meeting space and other concessions that help keep costs of the convention lower.

A current, completed tax-exempt form should be mailed with your hotel registration to avoid paying
state sales tax. The 8% local tax applies to all rooms. If using a tax-exempt form, payment must be
made with a check or credit card from the organization that is tax exempt. Cash, personal check or
personal credit card CANNOT be honored for the tax exemption. It is important to bring a back-up copy of
your hotel registration and tax exempt form even though you mailed one with registration.

IF NO TAX-EXEMPT FORM IS SENT WITH ROOM REGISTRATION, YOU MUST PAY THE HOTEL ROOM
RATE PER NIGHT + 9.25% SALES TAX + 8% LOCAL SALES TAX.

HOTEL RESERVATIONS OPEN March 1, 2011. HOTEL RESERVATIONS DEADLINE IS MARCH 18,
2011. All hotel assignments will be provided by the housing bureau (Chattanooga Convention
Visitors Bureau) and no reservations for this conference will be accepted by the hotel directly.
Reservations must be received by midnight, March 18, 2011 (EST). The hotel requires one night’s
room and tax per room for an initial deposit (must be sent with room registration). You may choose to
send the entire pre-payment with your room reservations. The hotel cancellation policy is 72 hours. It is
critical that you cancel any room 72 hours in advance to avoid any charges. Before canceling rooms,
please contact Kara B. Burkett at Kara.Burkett@tn.gov.
