The Mineral Point High School Future Business Leaders of America competed successfully in the Regional Leadership Conference.  There are over 70 business events with everything from Agribusiness to Word Processing to choose from, and competition formats from online and in-person objective tests, to presentation events to fit members’ interests and schedules.

The eighteen members pictured traveled to Ithaca High School on Saturday, February 3 to compete in their in-person business events.  The online event competition for many of the FBLA members in Region 4 took place previously on January 11.
