        After months of preparation and a year of hard work, the Ashland-Greenwood FBLA chapter sent several of its members to compete and participate in the virtual Nebraska State Leadership Conference. This conference occurred in four main phases:  projects, objective team tests, objective individual events, and seminars at the conference itself. The projects were the first step in the SLC process; members got into groups to complete a hands-on project with topics ranging from digital design and video production to business ethics and client service. Once these projects were submitted, the taking of objective team tests commenced. Members were put into small groups to take objective tests separately, but some students went a step further and made it to the final round, where the teams got together to complete a role-playing case study. The final piece of the competition side of SLC was the individual objective testing, in which students set a day aside to go into the gym and take one or more timed tests over a range of topics and for a variety of age levels. After the competitions were complete, it was time for FBLA chapters across the state to celebrate their hard work and success at the virtual State Leadership Conference on April 14, 2021. The Ashland-Greenwood chapter made the most of this experience by going to the Ashland Country Club to participate in the virtual seminars together, and at the end of the day, the winners of the different events and the national qualifiers were revealed. This year, the Ashland-Greenwood chapter will have 23 members representing the school at the virtual National Leadership Conference this summer, and the chapter leaders are extremely proud of this group and excited to see what is in store for them next.
