Virtual Regional Competitions *UPDATE*
Happy New Year, Tennessee FBLA!
This special announcement hopefully comes with a bit of helpful news. Due to the ever-changing dates and procedures for students to return to school in-person or virtually this month, the decision has been made to push our regional competition online testing, regional competition virtual role-play, speech and interview submissions, and state officer application deadlines back one week. The new dates are as follows:

12-14 Tennessee FBLA Regional Competition Online Testing Opens | 8:00 a.m. CT daily

These changes have been made to allow all of our Tennessee advisers a better opportunity to prepare their students to participate in our upcoming virtual regional competitions. This COVID-19 pandemic has presented numerous challenges in the educational world, so I hope that this flexibility will encourage our Tennessee student members to give their best efforts as we begin our competition journey in 2021.
