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. The goal of this program is to encourage members to participate in their community and grow in leadership and citizenship. The program allows members to track their service and participation in BPA.
