Congratulations to Amara Nazario and Alexys Yannes, both members of the Class of 2016, whose successful Public Service Announcement project has earned them a trip to the FBLA National Leadership Conference to be held in Atlanta, Georgia this summer. The students competed in the Public Service Announcement or PSA competition which requires FBLA members to demonstrate the ability to research a topic or issue and create an original and informative thirty-second PSA video, raising awareness and/or evoking a changed attitude toward the issue. This year's topic was the following:

"In light of current events with professional sports teams, franchises, and professional sports players the image of these companies has been tarnished. Produce a PSA demonstrating the positive impact of sports."

Amara and Alexys presented their video at the state competition and will be expected to present a five-minute oral presentation at the NLC. Good luck girls and congratulations!
