Hondo High School B.P.A.

Business Professionals of America










What is it? Business Professionals of America is a national organization for students who are enrolled in or have in the past been enrolled in business and computer technology classes or who may or may not be interested in pursuing a career in these areas.

Who can join? Anyone at Hondo High School can join!!!! It is recommended that members should be enrolled in or have already completed a business or technology class, but it is not necessary.

When are the competitions? The dates for events this year is:

Area II, Region II Competition:    To be Determined (probably Saturday, January 20, 2018 @ Medina Valley High School

State Competition:                          February 28 - March 3, 2018  Corpus Christi, Texas

National Competition:                      May 9-13, 2018     Dallas, Texas

What types of competitive events are there? First of all, Texas is broken into 6 areas. We are in Area II, Region II. We compete with all schools in our region at the regional competition, whether it may be 5A schools down to A schools. The next step is state. There are no practice meets like UIL, so there is a lot of “at school” practice.

There are competitive events available for nearly every interest and ability. There are numerous computer events including graphics, presentations and programming. Other computer events involve using specific software and applications such as keyboarding, word processing, spreadsheets, database applications, and desktop publishing. There are several speaking events, interview skills events, and competitions in the accounting or math area as well as medical and legal fields. Most are individual competitions but there are some team events such as parliamentary procedure, presentation graphics, economic research and website development.

What are my chances of succeeding? Your chances of succeeding are very good if you are willing to put in a little extra time and effort into practicing. Our chapter has a successful tradition. We have had numerous students that advance from Area to State and students have been to National Competition 7 of the last 10 years.

What are the benefits to me? You will have the opportunity to belong to an organization where you can practice the workplace skills you learn in class in a competitive setting. You can receive recognition for winning at competitions as well as for participating in other awards programs in Business Professionals of America. Scholarships are awarded and available for active members. Perhaps the greatest benefit is in the skills, leadership and friendships that you will build.

What does it cost? Dues are $25.00 per year. We raise other funds by selling homecoming mums and we operate the basketball concession stand in January and February.

 Join today! Contact Mrs. Bader in Room 425 for more information or just ask a member!
