On March 15th, twelve FBLA students ventured across the street to attend the first annual American Business Competition at Chadron State College. Since this was the first competition hosted by CSC, Nebraska Council on Economic Education and Phi Beta Lambda (PBL), attendance from other schools in the panhandle was not quite at the level they were hoping for. However, Chadron High and Hay Springs both showed up ready to compete. Students were given one hour to complete a 100 question test in each event. The top score received first place honors. The Job Interview event allowed only two students per school and they were put through the interview process with a prepared cover letter and resume. Round one interviews put the top two into final interviews. Both Chadron students Greta Welch and Corbin Johnson made the final round of interviews.
