FBLA chapters from the entire state of Georgia gathered to hear exactly how to “Build Bridges,” the 2017- 2018 FBLA theme, and follow their dreams, while remaining optimistic, even through obstacles.
After the Rally, students had the opportunity to test in areas such as Economics, Network Design, Healthcare, and/or Advertising. Students could test individually, in pairs, or in a group in efforts to win points for their FBLA Chapter. In addition to the Open Testing Preview, schools could participate in many other events. These events included the Chapter Banner Contest (students designed a banner to represent their school to place in front of their section in the Arena), Chapter Spirit T-Shirt Contest (students design their own T-shirt that best reflects this year’s FBLA theme: Building Bridges) State Project Contest, and much more. Our FBLA T-Shirt committee came together to design the T-shirt, which we entered in the contest! Once all the FBLA related events were completed, students were released to enjoy the fair. As a club, we look forward to enhancing our leadership skills and developing our character with the help of FBLA. Overall, it was an experience never to be forgotten, and we look forward to continuing to attend this event in future years.
