Future Business Leaders of America is a club centered on various business related categories. Depending on the category, you can either present or take a test that you will be judged on accordingly. Everyone has three months to prepare for each competition. These ranges go from districts to nationals. Throughout the time between competitions, and during the competitions themselves, students learn various different skills and facts about important topics on their own and from other students at their school and in competition, which helps students in school and other aspects of life. Kimberly Bogran, who just started participating in FBLA this year says that FBLA “helps [her] develop better communication skills [in school]” and that it allows her to “[develop] real world skills [through participating in] professional competitions.” FBLA is a great and beneficial club for students of all levels; the work and time put in by these students is truly impressive. And, the best part is being able to apply these skills to other aspects of life.
