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:
 
JANUARY
7                 Tennessee FBLA Regional Competition Payments Due
12-14     Tennessee FBLA Regional Competition Online Testing Opens | 8:00 a.m. CT daily
12-14     Tennessee FBLA Regional Competition Online Testing Closes | 5:00 p.m. CT daily
14              Tennessee FBLA Regional Competition Prejudged Events Due | 5:00 p.m. CT

21              Management Decision Making, Marketing, and Sports & Entertainment Events Only
22              Impromptu Speaking, Introduction to Public Speaking, Public Speaking Events Only
 
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. Please remember to check here daily for additional updates and be sure to subscribe to our official mailing list here as well. Best of luck to everyone!
