FBLA is a student association for high school students interested in business careers as well as students looking to gain leadership and new opportunities set to prepare them for the future.
Activities of FBLA!Student Favorites: Guest speakers, career preparation, networking opportunities, exciting leadership conferences, travel opportunities (CHICAGO!), visits to a variety of businesses, job shadowing experiences, and scholarships and awards. Leadership Opportunities: Members participate in chapter activities (“Go Green,” food drives, community service, donate to a cause, etc.) and have the opportunity to take on officer roles. Through activities and exciting leadership conferences students gain experience and new accomplishments to take with them as they strive to pursue their goals. Members work in their school and with local businesses to gain leadership skills and give back to the community.
On Thursday, April 6th, the Wilcox-Hildreth FBLA left for the FBLA State Leadership Conference (SLC) in Omaha at 7 a.m. Upon arrival in Omaha, the FBLA members stopped for brunch at Cracker Barrel. After checking into the hotel and going to registration the members attended the 2016-2017 SLC opening session. At the session schools were recognized for starting new chapters, gaining more members, and receiving ribbons. The opening session also had the conference’s key speaker, Hoan Do, talk. Hoan Do is a coach, author, and competed in American Ninja Warrior. Hoan Do’s message was “success is not what you know, but what you do”. After Hoan Do spoke, 2017-2018 state officer candidates, gave their speeches on why they should be elected. When the opening session ended FBLA members went to their competitions. The competitions throughout the SLC ranged from job interviews, accounting tests, and computer programming. Friday consisted of more competitions, delegates voting, an honorable mention session, and a FBLA dance. At the session Friday night, Wilcox-Hildreth left with two awards. The first award was to James and Lisa Ziebarth for outstanding volunteers, Alec Z went on stage to accept this award. James and Lisa have donated both Nebraska Cornhusker football tickets and their time to the Wilcox-Hildreth FBLA Chapter for many years. The next award was a Phi Beta Lambda (PBL) Scholarship given to Skylar H. This scholarship gives $100 towards tuition and pays for the students first year of PBL dues. On Saturday, April 8th, before heading home the Wilcox-Hildreth FBLA attended the closing awards session for the 2016-2017 FBLA SLC. At the session, the new 2017-2018 state officers were handed the gavel and more awards were given to competitors. Brooke G, Skylar H, and Riley P were awarded 5th Place in E-Business! After the ceremony, the FBLA members headed back to Wilcox. Overall, it was a very successful week for the Wilcox-Hildreth FBLA Chapter!
