How can you help?

Every year, California FBLA needs dozens of business professionals to evaluate reports and presentations; interview competitors; and conduct role-play exercises with students.

Here are the 40+ competitive events that need judges:

Judge student submissions prior to the conference

We will give you instructions, student submissions (i.e. reports, videos and websites) and rating sheets over email, so you can judge from wherever you are in the country. These events do not require you to travel to Sacramento, CA for the State Leadership Conference.

Judge interviews, presentations and role-plays at the conference

Depending on the competition, we will assign you to evaluate presentations, interview competitors or conduct role-play exercises.

  • When can I judge? — Thursday, April 25; Friday, April 26; or Saturday, April 27.
  • What is the time commitment? — 4-5 hours, including orientation
  • Where will judging take place? — Sacramento Convention Center in Sacramento, CA
  • Free parking, food vouchers and a gift will be provided to thank you for your time.

Here's a sample presentation from FBLA's national competitions.

"Judging FBLA competitions is a full-circle moment for me. As a past FBLA competitor, coming back as a judge helps continue the tradition of preparing students for a future career in business."

— Manuel Rapada, California FBLA alumnus and judge for California FBLA competitions
