State Contests

Each year MABPA offers 5 opportunities for students to earn scholarship money towards the National Leadership Conference. They consist of:

  • State Pin Contest- the winning design is made into a pin for the upcoming National Leadership Conference
  • Cover Contest- design the cover for our 2020 SLC program
  • T-Shirt Contest- design the official Conference T-Shirt for the 2020 SLC
  • Writing Contest- students write an essay in response to a given topic
  • Community Service Award - showcase the community service projects that your chapter participates in.

Each award offers $100 for first place, $75 for second place, and $50 for third place. See individual contest guidelines below for more details and for directions on how to submit.
