        BPA Cares

        As your chapter prepares for their competitive events in the coming months, the National Officers hope that you will also make time to participate in the 2015-2016 BPA Cares program. BPA Cares is the community service arm of Business Professionals of America and is designed to reward individuals and chapters who become involved in their community through BPA.

        The program is divided into three major sections: Service Learning, Special Recognition, and Professional Awards. Service Learning awards are designed to reward using BPA to provide service opportunities to members and include awards such as the Special Olympics Award and the Community Service Award. Special Recognition awards are for chapters and members who promote BPA by using many techniques such as social media or through a chapter website and include the Social Media Award and the BPA Marketing & Public Relations Awards. Finally, Professional Awards are for individuals who go above and beyond to support our organization and include awards such as the Hall of Fame Award and the Advisor of the Year Award.

        There are a wide variety of activities that can qualify for BPA Cares Awards and all of the awards and their requirements can be found in the BPA Cares Handbook at http://www.bpa.org/service/careshb.  By earning BPA Cares awards chapters and individuals have the opportunity to earn certificates, plaques, and recognition at the local, state, and national levels. Additionally, chapters who participate help their state to earn BPA’s highest honor: the Professional Cup.

         In order to apply for these awards visit the BPA.org website, click the BPA Cares link under the Service tab, and choose the award for which you want to apply. This will open up a link to a Google Form with all of the criteria for the award. After filling out this form, if you have met the requirements, you are qualified for the award! The applications for the Service Learning and Special Recognition categories of awards are due by April 1st and the Professional Award applications are due by March 1st. We hope to see your applications for BPA Cares soon, and we will see you in Boston!

        Sincerely,

        David Woodside

        National Treasurer
