    9th - 12th-grade HSLJ students may join BPA.  They will submit a signed application and event selection form and pay $50.00 dues.  They must compete in an individual and/or team event.  Students will also participate in community service, leadership, and professional development activities through BPA-sponsored programs such as the BPA Cares Award, Torch Award, Leadership Academy, and the Intern program while a member of HSLJ BPA and while attending leadership conferences.


    All members are encouraged to participate in BPA regional, state, and national competitive events. In fact, the WSAP Competitive Events program is the biggest cog of what makes BPA tick. Students prepare for and compete in contests in over 65 categories under five assessment areas, including Finance, Business Administration, Management Information Systems, Digital Communication & Design, and Management, Marketing, & Communication.

    Students begin with a Regional competition. The top qualifiers compete at the State conference, and finally, those ranked the best of the best, compete at the National Leadership Conference in May of each year. Competitions range from individual to team, from objective tests to judged presentations. Each one helps students prepare to be part of an effective, and skilled national workforce.

    So what are you waiting for? Get involved in BPA today!
