At the State FBLA Leadership Conference in Layton on March 5-7, the PHS FBLA competitors did great! Nephi Zurieta placed 10th in Help Desk, and the Business Ethics Team of Maria Maco, Maria Romero, and Lucy Black placed 2nd at State, qualifying for Nationals in Nashville this summer!
Prior to competition, the Business Ethics Team reached out to the community to implement their recommendations from their case involving social media in a company setting. Stephanie O’Brien, an attorney at Fillmore Spencer LLC, Provo, UT, graciously prepared for the team an eight page Social Media Draft Section pro bono. (Side note: Stephanie is the daughter of PHS teacher, Mrs. McConnell.) The Business Ethics Team is featured on the Utah Valley Chamber of Commerce’s website. Check out their article and photo by following the Chamber’s blog thread. A special thanks to Renae Deighton, a rep at UVCC, for placing the Team’s info on the blog.
On the way to State, the PHS FBLA competitors went on a behind-the-scenes tour of KSL Broadcast House. Before the regular tour started, they had the opportunity to meet with a KSL writer and the KSL Social Media Director.
The group’s itinerary also included being recognized at a UEN film screening of the Mad Men and Women of Madison Avenue at the UVCC Grand Theatre on March 5, 2014.
State FBLA competitive events consist of a wide array of events consisting of written events, performance events, skills testing, team & individual events. Approximately 1,700 students from around the State came to compete at the three day conference. Way to go Bulldogs!
