Members of the Wolford Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) chapter attended the 51st annual ND FBLA State Leadership Conference in Bismarck, March 25-27, 2018. Over 60 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 design, or business ethics. 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 2018-2019 state officer team, and network with members from around the state.

The Wolford Chapter brought home a tremendous amount of awards. The students participated in a couple events that happened before the SLC. They placed in the following events.
