                               FBLA Competitive Events Topics
                                          2011 FBLA SLC and NLC

“Business Financial Plan”
Due to the economy, changing lifestyles, global warming, and the desire for stress-free vacations, you are going to
open a service business called Backyard Vacations. This business will be based on the idea that your home is now
your vacation spot. The business will come in and change the customer’s yard to accommodate the family. This
could include installation of pools, spas, playgrounds, grills, porches, gardens and areas for relaxation. Prepare a
business financial plan for the purchase of the materials including the rent of a centrally located building, office
equipment, and startup capital for the first 20 customers.

“Business Presentation”
The CEO of your company has asked you to present information on how the company should be using social
media to communicate with the clients. Select one or more types of social media that can be used for
communicating to the company’s clients. Several points to include are tips, lingo, privacy issues, social
networking, micro blogging, etc.

“Computer Game and Simulation Programming
You will develop an entertaining simulation/game that will show traveling by highway starting in Chicago,
Illinois to the FBLA 2011 National Leadership Conference in Orlando, Florida. Along the way, billboards will
display multiple choice questions related to financial literacy. The player must choose the correct lane with the
right answer to get more fuel for the trip.

“Desktop Application Programming”
You will write a class grade book program that accepts the following from a .dat file:
   1. an integer from 1-25—this integer will represent the number of students in a class.
   2. an integer from 4-10—this integer will represent the number of grades to be submitted for each student in
       the class. This number will be input only once. The user must input the same number of grades for each
       student.
   3. Depending on the number entered in step 2 (can range from 4-10), you will ask what the percentage is for
       each grade to be entered. The total must equal 100.
Ask the user for the location of the .dat file and do the necessary processing to return the following:
    averages for each student
    averages, maximums, minimum for each set of grades (assignment)

The .dat file will have the following information:
    a record for the number of students.
    a record for the number of grades.
    a record for the percentage for each of the grades.
    a record for each student and that students grades. The format for this record will be 20 characters for
        a name followed by 10 set of 3 numbers for the max number of grades.
Below is an example of the .txt file
       4
       4
       15252535
       student name 1 100090080000000000000000000000
       student name 2 099090080100000000000000000000
       student name 3 000090081100000000000000000000
       student name 4 100095085075000000000000000000
The program must validate the following:
   1. the number of students accepted from record 1 is the same number of student records processed.
   2. the number of grades accepted from record 2 is the number of grades used. Any grades outside of the
       value submitted in record 2 should be 000 in the student/grade record. For example: In the example file,
                                                       9-5
       it is stated that there would be 4 grades for each student. If a grade other than 000 were found in the fifth
       through tenth grades for a student, an error should be generated.
    3. the percentage of grades adds up to 100.
The program will process the file and produce the following reports/files:
   1. a report or file formatted for printing that contains the average for each student; the average, maximum
       and minimum for each set of grades submitted. These values should be to two decimal positions.
   2. a report or file formatted for printing that contains a listing of any errors that occurred while processing
       the file.
The values that should be returned for the example file are:
    average for student
    student name 1 - 57.50
    student name 2 - 92.35
    student name 3 - 77.75
    student name 4 - 86.25
    for grade 1 - average is 74.75, maximum is 100, minimum is 0
    for grade 2 - average is 91.25, maximum is 95, minimum is 90
    for grade 3 - average is 81.50, maximum is 85, minimum is 80
    for grade 4 - average is 68.75, maximum is 100, minimum is 0

“Digital Video Production”
Research FBLA-PBL and create an original logo and tag line to reflect the mission and purpose of the
organization.

“E-Business”
Your FBLA chapter has been approached by the school’s administration to boost school spirit by creating
an online store offering items the student body and community can purchase to show support of their school.
The items should be divided into a minimum of three categories such as school, clubs, sports, academics, etc.
Items could include, but not be limited to, t-shirts, bumper stickers, hoodies, license plates, banners, posters,
etc. The site may be real or fictional. Included in the site should be a navigation bar to allow participants to
view, select, and purchase all items and events. It must also offer a shopping cart, pricing and payment
information (including payment options), mailing options (including local pickup), and security/service
information. You are not expected to have a live link.

“Emerging Business Issues “
There is a great deal of emphasis in our economy to build and operate businesses in an environmentally
efficient manner. Should state or federal government offer special incentives for companies that choose to
build with green materials, harness green power, and employ other green tactics in their operations? Be
prepared to argue the affirmative that yes, the government should offer incentives in order to encourage
businesses to build green; or be prepared to argue the negative, that no, the government should not subsidize
overhead costs of businesses that build or operate in an environmentally efficient manner.

“Web Site Design”
The career specialist at your high school has asked for FBLA’s assistance. She has been getting phone calls
from local businesses to hire 16-18 year old high school students. The businesses would like to find a quick, easy
way to look for qualified students to interview. She doesn’t have time to post the jobs on the school Web site, and
would like for FBLA to develop a Web site specifically for the purpose of posting of positions. This site should
list part-time jobs or internships available for 16-18 year old students. This would require, at a minimum,
developing criteria for:
      position description                      hours                                  pay
      qualifications                            days of the week                       duties

The opportunities posted may be real or fictitious.

Business Ethics
Ethics and Social Media

Business Presentation
The college career center has asked you to develop a presentation on how to “kick start” the job hunting process they
can use. Explain strategies for landing the first full-time employment.

Computer Game & Simulation Programming
You will develop an entertaining simulation/game that will show traveling by highway starting in Chicago, Illinois to
the PBL 2011 National Leadership Conference in Orlando, Florida. Along the way, billboards will display multiple
choice questions related to job searches (e.g., interview process, company research, job research, resume writing,
portfolios, dress, etc.). The player must choose the correct lane with the right answer to get more fuel for the trip.

Emerging Business Issues
There is a great deal of emphasis in our economy to build and operate businesses in an environmentally efficient
manner. Should state or federal government offer special incentives for companies that choose to build with green
materials, harness green power, and employ other green tactics in their operations? Be prepared to argue the
affirmative that yes, the government should offer incentives in order to encourage businesses to build green; or be
prepared to argue the negative, that no, the government should not subsidize overhead costs of businesses that build
or operate in an environmentally efficient manner.

Digital Video Production
Prepare an informational video to be used as part of a presentation to your local Chamber of Commerce describing
what PBL is and the benefits to members. The video will be part of a presentation asking for funds to help your local
chapter members attend NLC. Topics in the video could include, but are not limited to, information about local
chapter activities, members’ achievements, and what members can gain from attending NLC.

Web Site Development
The career center at your school has asked you to design a Web site for job postings. The career center receives many
phone calls from local and nationwide businesses with job opportunities for students seeking part-time jobs,
internship experience (unpaid), and full time employment for the college graduate.

The site would list part-time jobs, internship opportunities, and full time employment opportunities, which may be
real or fictitious. The site would require minimally developing criteria for: position description
      qualifications
      hours
      days of the week
      pay
      duties

       Business suit with collar dress shirt, and necktie or
       Sport coat, dress slacks, collared shirt, and necktie or

                    skirt should cover the same amount of length (or more) as the paper. If there is less skirt
                    than paper, the skirt is too short.

Inappropriate attire, for both men and women, includes:

        dresses are acceptable.

Everybody likes a winner and likes to be a winner! Competition is the heart of our American society, and
competitive events sponsored by professional associations and educational agencies are a natural outgrowth of our
competitive society.
While it is generally agreed that competitive events are inherently good, many educators express concern over the
use made of competitive events and the abuses that sometimes accompany competitive events.
Many advantages accrue to schools and to individual students from participation in competitive events.
Competitive events are excellent motivating devices; they help to instill the desire to learn and to achieve.
Students quickly become aware that the road to success is not paved with good intentions and wishful thoughts.
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 activities for students.
Competitive events can be very helpful in building school spirit and in publicizing the office occupations
programs. They help to develop pride in the program and perhaps also help in recruitment.
On the other hand, over-emphasis on winning can produce negative side effects. Competitive events should not
be used to determine curricula, teaching methodology, time spent on class activities, textbooks to be used,
shorthand system, grading procedures, or for teacher evaluation.
Many temptations face the teacher who has an over-zealous desire to produce a winner or who receives subtle
pressure from the school to produce a winner. Some go to great lengths to determine specific test contents.
Although their intentions are generally good, they themselves might term the approach ―cheating‖ if students in
their classes used the same approach. Some secure copies of previous tests or have contest participants make
copious notes to build a test file. How does this differ from fraternity or club file that teachers try hard to control?
Numerous opportunities for abuse can come from these test files. Excessive class time can be spent on areas
covered in contests at the expense of subject matter that should be taught. Sound grading procedures are often
modified to conform to the grading procedures of contests. What seems to be forgotten is that special procedures
often have to be established in order to make fine distinctions between the very best students in a particular area.
While these procedures are especially appropriate for this purpose, they may not be the best approach to use for
evaluation in a typical class.
Another abuse comes in selecting a contestant very early in the year and spending undue time ―priming‖ that
student to be a winner. The major problem with this approach is that it deprives other students in the school of the
benefits of competition at the local level. Only a few students can compete at the district, state, and national
levels, but the opportunity should be available to as many students as possible at the local level. Delaying
contestant selection as long as possible might mean that five or ten students are striving for mastery or excellence
in an area rather than one.
Another area of abuse comes from judging teacher competence by the number of winners produced in a
period of time. Often this comes in the form of subtle comments such as Teacher X is an excellent teacher;
his/her students have placed in the state contest every year for the last three years. A teacher is not an
excellent teacher simply because a student wins a contest any more than a teacher is a poor teacher
because a student does not win a contest. Incidentally, students who do not win are not “losers.” They
generally are some of the very best students—to dub them as losers is grossly unfair.
If a teacher will recognize the tremendous value of contests, maintain a professional attitude toward
competitive events, and keep them in proper perspective, our students will be the big winners!

               PBL National Leadership Conference Stipend Program

New Jersey Phi Beta Lambda could not implement its state program of work without the financial support of New
Jersey Future Business Leaders of America. As a result, FBLA has come to expect a certain level of volunteerism
from PBL in conducting its regional and state competitive events and conferences.
The stipend for a PBL member, who attends the National Leadership Conference as a state competitive event
winner or state officer, will no longer be given automatically. It must be earned through points given by working
either the four FBLA Regional Competitive Events (RCE) in January and/or the FBLA State Leadership
Conference (SLC) in March. The amount of the stipend is determined annually and is usually set at $50 or $75.
To earn one stipend to attend the PBL National Leadership Conference, a PBL member must assist with two
FBLA Regional Competitive Events or one FBLA Regional Competitive Event and the FBLA State Leadership
Conference. To earn the stipend, the member must participate in the entire conference. If the PBL member earns
the stipend but cannot attend the PBL National Leadership Conference, his/her local chapter will be granted a half
stipend to be assigned to another member who is a state competitive event winner or state officer.
