Ozark FBLA Students Win 32 Medals at District Conference

The students of Ozark High School’s Future Business Leaders of America picked up 32 medals in 26 events at the District Leadership Conference held at Missouri State.

In addition to the 32 medals, eight students won district championships.

“This group of FBLA students did a great job this year. They put in a lot of time outside of school to get prepared for their events,” Matt Fevold, OHS FBLA advisor, said in a statement. “Many events require the students to create presentations, websites and digital designs for businesses. While other events require the students to find solutions to business problems using outside-the-box thinking and creativity. These events are valuable with helping our kids learn real life skills in a fun, competitive environment.”
