The Port Angeles High School Chapter of Future Business Leaders of America competed at the Washington State FBLA Business Leadership Conference held in Bellevue, Washington on April 10-13, 2019.

This conference had over 1,800 students attending from 150 chapters throughout the state. Fourteen members of the Port Angeles High School FBLA Chapter participated in the conference along with advisors Pam Helpenstell and Bernie Brabant.

Please congratulate the following students for their results in these categories:

  • Talia Anderson, Anne Edwards and Abby Sanders – First place in Digital Video Production
  • Amelie Atwater and Meiqi Liang – First place in Local Annual Chapter Report
  • Talia Anderson – Second place in Certified Microsoft Office Word Specialist

Those that earned fourth place and up are eligible to advance to the National Conference in San Antonio, TX in late June (June 27-July 3, 2019), but may choose only one event to enter.

From PAHS, Meiqi Liang, Amelie Atwater, Anne Edwards, Abby Sanders and Talia Anderson, all first-place finishers, will go to Nationals in San Antonio.

Josh Hill, Luke Gavin and Leo Ahlburg will find out next week if they will be able to go to Nationals. Students from other districts may have qualified in more than one event but may only choose one to compete in at Nationals, which opens spots for others who placed fifth through tenth.
