The Champion Chapter Program, which awarded the recognition, is a series of engagement-focused challenges that chapters must meet to gain national recognition. 

Each challenge they complete they receive points for their point system.  

More than 600 chapters achieved one of the five levels by participating in chapter and member engagement activities which strengthens each chapter’s program of work.  

FBLA will receive their championship poster in August as well as their welcome kit to the champion chapter program.
