The Virtual Business Personal Finance Challenge encourages FBLA members to test their financial literacy skills. Participating teams will be making personal finance decisions for a simulated person. The concepts students will be managing include opening bank accounts, paying bills, filing taxes, applying for jobs, enrolling in educational courses, paying for goods, applying for credit cards, determining schedules, budgeting, and more. For each round, teams will be ranked based on their person's net worth after running the simulation for two virtual years.

FBLA prepares students to become community-minded business leaders through relevant career preparation and leadership experiences. Members of FBLA prepare for careers in business through academic competitions, leadership development, and educational programs. FBLA and its college counterpart, Phi Beta Lambda (PBL), have nearly 250,000 members in over 13,000 chartered chapters in the nation.

Good luck, ladies!
