Promoting Professionalism and Leadership
The Business Professionals of America 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 Résumé.
Each activity is worth 5, 10, 15, or 20 points. When a student achieves a certain number of points for each category, his/her advisor or local reviewer can submit the résumé online to be reviewed for recognition. All students completing a satisfactory résumé will earn either an Executive, Diplomat, Statesman or Ambassador Torch Award certificate.
