Students build business experience at FBLA State

Twelve Rhinelander High School students traveled to Green Bay recently for the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) State Leadership Conference. Approximately 2,400 students attended the conference, each with the goal of making it to national competition in San Antonio, Texas. Besides competing, students attended workshops, took tours of prominent Green Bay businesses and met other students from across the state, according to a School District of Rhinelander press release.

Rhinelander students competed in various business-related events including accounting and economics, all of which required taking a 100-question test. Many events also included role plays, in which a person is given a situation, then must resolve it by communicating with a judge. There were also several speaking events that were prepared impromptu or in advance.

In each event, the top four finishers qualify for the national competition.

For Rhinelander, Abby Krueger placed first in Client Services; and Valerie Dalka and Carmen Ibarra took second in Entrepreneurship. Grace Heck, Hunter Hicks, and Josh Randolph took fourth in Management Decision Making.

Makenzie Denny and Samuel Fehlen were also recognized at state. Denny placed fifth in Introduction to Information Technology and Fehlen took sixth in Sales Presentation.

As a whole, Rhinelander placed 22nd in Outstanding Chapter out of over 117 chapters throughout the state. The chapter was also recognized for its community service efforts based on amount of time and members who have helped complete several projects throughout the year, especially Trick or Can, Fall Fest and Jeans For Teens.

For the fifth consecutive year, Rhinelander placed first in Community Service.

The six students who qualified have the opportunity to go to San Antonio, Texas from June 27-July 3 and compete against students from all 50 states.

For more information about FBLA, or to support the FBLA students as they advance to the national competition, contact Ms. Fryar at (715)-365-9500 or fryarmis@rhinelander.k12.wi.us.
