Need some ideas to celebrate FBLA-PBL Pride?
1. Show Your True Colors. If your members are wearing FBLA-PBL colors, blue and gold, put their names in a drawing for a prize to reward them for showing their FBLA-PBL spirit.
3. Schedule a Skype Meeting with Your National Officers. Request a Skype meeting with National FBLA President Taylor Sarman or National PBL President Jake Barreau.

4. Celebrate with Food. Have a special FBLA-PBL meeting with food to end the school week. Your officers could present the FBLA-PBL emblem ceremony or pass out the materials and have them review it. They could either present it at a future meeting or video tape it to use for special occasions.
5. Test Your FBLA Trivia. If you are in FBLA, have your members listen to the FBLA-PBL Week Trivia Contest audio files (each one is about a minute long). Then have them complete the crossword puzzle and award a prize to the person that completes it first. (Answers to crossword puzzle).
Another trivia idea: Gather some volunteers and create two teams. Play the FBLA-PBL trivia game in front of members at a meeting. Use the SlideShare presentation below (here is the link to the Trivia Game answers).
