Virtual Regional Competition Final Scores

Congratulations to every student who participated in this year's virtual regional competitions last month! All judging and scoring concluded this past Friday evening, and the results for each regional competition can be found here. Every virtual regional competitor who earned a place in the score reports here is invited to compete in our virtual state competition next month. If a student or team did not earn a place as reported here, that student or team did not satisfy all of the competitive event requirements.

Chapter advisers can log into the virtual regionals registration portal to view a summary of each student's scores and to download all evaluation forms for their chapters here. All regional competition awards will be mailed to each local chapter (school) for distribution to the winners in the coming days.

Virtual Regional Competition Video URL Links

Now that our virtual regional competitions have officially concluded, all YouTube and Vimeo videos must be deleted/removed from both sites immediately. Please prioritize this request no later than Wednesday, February 3, 2021, at 5:00 p.m. CT.

Virtual State Competition Update

This year, our state competition will be held virtually due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic that our state and country are still facing. Similar to our virtual regional competitions, students can complete their exams either at home or at school, and all role-plays, speeches, and presentations will be pre-recorded submitted online using YouTube or Vimeo. Live, virtual interviews will be scheduled in real-time for the Job Interview and Future Business Leader events. The Scrapbook (Hard Copy) event will not take place this year.

The registration fee will be $25 per competitor and $10 per adviser. Additional competition guidelines will be shared via email and here in the coming days. Please check for updates regularly.
