The Wasatch High School chapter of Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) earned the “Utah FBLA Most Outstanding Chapter” award for the second year in a row during the FBLA Leadership Conference held in Layton March 31-April 1, 2011. Wasatch High School FBLA received the traveling trophy that goes to the first place chapter in the state each year. This award is given to the school that performs the best during the two-day conference. This is the seventh time in the in the past nine years that Wasatch High School FBLA has won the title of best FBLA chapter in Utah.

The most outstanding chapter award is determined by how individuals and teams from each school place in 65 different FBLA competitive events. The top ten students or teams in each event are recognized. Wasatch High School edged out second place Hillcrest and third place finishers Taylorsville and Alta High Schools for the 2011 title. In FBLA, all schools 1A-5A compete against each other, regardless of size. There were 85 schools and over 1,600 students from throughout Utah participating at this year’s conference.

Thirty-two Wasatch High FBLA members competed in this two-day event. Wasatch FBLA members performed extremely well during this year’s competition with 25 students placing in 39 different individual, team, and chapter events. Wasatch had outstanding performances from many members who placed in multiple events. Jarom Roney lead the way placing in seven events, Joe Jacobson placed in six events, McKenna King placed in five events, and Jake Jones placed in four events. Six other members placed in three events each. Beau Bown was elected to serve as Utah FBLA Reporter for the 2011-12 school year. Nine Wasatch High FBLA members qualified to attend the National FBLA Leadership Conference which will be held in Orlando, FL in June of 2011.

“We are so proud of all of the students who participated in state FBLA this year”, said advisor Marge Carlile. “There are many hours of work and preparation that are put in by our FBLA officers and members.” Advisor Susan Edwards commented, “It is very exciting and gratifying to see the hard work and dedication of these students pay off at the state leadership conference!“

“We want to congratulate and thank all of the students who worked diligently to get ready for this year’s competition,” said Ms Carlile. “Thanks to the parents of these students for the encouragement and assistance they provided. Thanks to the business teachers for helping to prepare these students in a variety of areas. Thanks to the administration for their support and for arranging the fire engine ride and pizza party upon their return home on April 1. A special thank you to the Wasatch County Fire Department for providing the fire engine ride down Main Street, honoring the 2011 Utah FBLA State Champions.”
