Future Business Leaders Bring Home National Honors

fblaFRANKFORT, Ky. (7/8/14) — Kentucky students and advisors were among the national winners at the recent 2014 National Future Business Leaders of America Conference in Nashville.

FBLA's national awards program recognizes and rewards excellence in a broad range of business and career-related areas. Through state-based competition at spring state leadership conferences, students compete in events testing their business knowledge and skills. Top state winners then are eligible to compete for honors at the national leadership conference each summer.

Kentucky FBLA had 460 members attend the national conference with 24 award winners, 14 in the top five, four state membership awards and two professional division awards.

"We are very proud of our students and advisers," said Commissioner Terry Holliday. "Future Business Leaders of America and other student organizations provide valuable experiences for our young people that serve them well in high school, postsecondary and in their chosen careers."

Among its goals, FBLA seeks to:

  • develop competent, aggressive business leadership

  • strengthen the confidence of students in themselves and their work

  • create more interest in and understanding of American business enterprise

  • encourage members in the development of individual projects that contribute to the improvement of home, business, and community

  • develop character, prepare for useful citizenship, and foster patriotism

  • encourage and practice efficient money management

  • encourage scholarship and promote school loyalty

  • assist students in the establishment of occupational goals

  • facilitate the transition from school to work

According to FBLA, members are 25 percent more likely to say they plan to attend a four-year college or university than their counterparts who are not members and are 40 percent more likely to start their own business after high school graduation.
