        Merit Scholar Award

        Skip Navigation LinksHome > Service > The BPA Cares Program > Special Recognition Awards Program > Merit Scholar Award

        Purpose
        To recognize individual members and advisors for their knowledge of Business Professionals of America and to motivate all members and advisors to learn as much as possible about the history, traditions, programs, and activities of the organization.

        Eligibility      
        Any member in good standing with Business Professionals of America, including advisors, attending the National Leadership Conference may earn the BPA Merit Scholar award by achieving a minimum of 90% on an objective test (true/false and multiple choice questions). This general contest is not part of the competitive events program; the BPA Merit Scholar award is part of the BPA Cares program offered to members.

        The test will be developed annually by the National Center. Resources used will be the BPA Cares Handbook, the Torch Awards Handbook, Merit Scholar Fact Sheet and www.bpa.org.

        An application is not required for this award. The award is given by the National Center to those individuals meeting the criteria.

        Recognition      
        Those participants achieving 90% or more on the test will receive a BPA Merit Scholar pin during the Awards Session at the National Leadership Conference.
