On Sunday, April 10th the Hay Springs FBLA(Future Business Leaders of America) team traveled to Kearney, NE to compete in the state competition along with 1700 other students. Hay Springs came home with three honorable mentions and a 6th place award.
At state competition FBLA gives awards to 8th place and then, based on the number of students testing, award a certain number of honorable mention places.
