PBL Awards of Excellence Program

Are you ready to Aspire to new levels competing against fellow students across the state?  


Each spring, North Dakota PBL brings together the best and brightest student leaders from throughout North Dakota for the annual State Leadership Conference. This year, we are focusing on empowering students with the skills and abilities needed to take them to the next level in their academic and professional careers, and encouraging them to “Create. Lead. Inspire.” Over the course of two days, students will showcase their skills in various competitive events, hear from dynamic speakers from a variety of backgrounds, network with student and business leaders from around the nation, and make their mark through a variety of service activities – all during one action-packed weekend in Bismarck!

Get ready to compete!

Put your skills to the test by competing in Competitive Events.  From Macroeconomics to Impromptu Speaking, Business Law to Website Design, there is a Competitive Event for everyone!

Do you want to build a portfolio of documented accomplishments before you enter the job market?  Activities in PBL can complement your academic experience and give you an edge in your future career.  Additionally, you will have the opportunity to network with our corporate partners.  You might even find a future career opportunity!

Get ready to give back!


Service, one of the core pillars of FBLA-PBL, is a great way to give back to your community.  North Dakota FBLA-PBL is proud to give back to our national service partner, March of Dimes, as well as contributing to our local communities.
