Over fifty FBLA chapters from across the state participated in this conference, where approximately 1,200 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, entrepreneurship, 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, business tours, and college tours. A new team of state officers were also elected at the conference.

During the past few weeks the students at West River Head Start have been learning about balls in our classroom. They have experimented with balls and seen if they float or sink in water. They have graphed balls according to size and see what one is bigger. They have built ramps out of blocks to see if we can get our balls to go fast or slow down the ramps. They have even got the chance to make their own bouncy ball to take home for them to enjoy.
They ended their study with ball painting; they put paper on the floor and let them experiment with rolling balls across paper to see what types of textures and designs they could make. They have learned a lot about balls during the last few weeks through our creative play in our classroom.
