Lowry students compete in FBLA competitions

Lowry students compete in FBLA competitions

By Chris Gildone Posted May 1, 2021

Students compete in a variety of competitions online. For the students to compete they made a video which could be role play, a speech etc. Then the top ten students would compete live on zoom with the judges. The top four finishers move on to nationals, but unfortunately this year they can not travel and it will be all online. Each student who competed was required to compete in a minimum of four to five events. Most of the students from Lowry who competed made nationals in at least one event.

Mrs. Lisa Scott, a business and computers teacher at Lowry, is the FBLA adviser. She was impressed with the students’ performance this year.

“We had more students this year and they did really well,” said Scott. “We ended up taking 2nd in the state.”

Giovani Sapien, a junior, did well this year making nationals in three events. He took first place in Word Processing, second place in Computer Applications, and third place in Spreadsheet Applications. Sapien was thankful for the help he received.

“I feel like for my first time I did a very good job,” said Sapien. “But I have to give all the credit to Mrs. Scott for pushing me to do FBLA and preparing me for the competition.”
