Torch Awards Program:

The Business Professionals of America's Torch Awards Program is designed to promote professionalism and leadership in both career development and personal growth. Students complete activities in the seven Torch categories - Leadership; Service; Cooperation; Knowledge; Friendship; Love, Hope, Faith; and Patriotism - then log their activities in an online Torch Resume. Recognition is provided at the Local, Regional, State and National levels.

Start earning your Torch Awards points now to be recognized at the State Leadership Conference. To be recognized as a Statesman Award Winner, members must document a minimum of 50 points in each of the torches and submit their resume online by the posted deadline. This year we will be recognizing the member with the highest number of Torch points as Texas Statesman of the Year. The highest Torch points earned in each Area will also be recognized at our Special Recognition Awards at the State Leadership Conference. Dream Bigger!
