On Monday, April 3rd the Hay Springs FBLA(Future Business Leaders of America) Chapter attended the state conference in Kearney. We had a great time competing in many different business competitions, with over 1,900 students registered.
Aside from the competitions students also attended business sessions and learned a lot about leadership, how to begin your career, how to brand yourself for job searches, the importance of building communication skills, and the process of developing ethical decisions.
Our chapter had great success at this year’s competition. We have 2 National Qualifiers and a few more may get the opportunity to compete nationally as well because they placed in the top 7% giving them Honorable Mention slots. Students are only allowed to compete in one individual event and one team event at Nationals.
