Wolford FBLA Excels at State Leadership Conference

April 29, 2016
Pierce County Tribune

Members of the Wolford Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) chapter attended the ND FBLA State Leadership Conference in Bismarck, April 3-5. Over 50 FBLA chapters from across the state participated in this conference, where approximately 1,300 students had the opportunity to test their business skills against other students from around the state.

The most exciting aspect of the conference is the competitive events program. Students have the opportunity to test the business skills they've learned in the classroom in a variety of individual, team, and chapter events. Students can enter events such as accounting, computer applications, public speaking, job interview, website development, or networking concepts. The culmination of the competitive events program is the awards ceremony where winners are recognized for their accomplishments. In addition to the competitive events program, students had the opportunity to attend workshops, vote for the 2016-2017 state officer team, and network with members from around the state.

The Wolford chapter took home awards during the conference. Lynnsey Slaubaugh and Dillon Slaubaugh have qualified to compete in the National Leadership Conference in Atlanta, Ga., in June.
