HS and MS FBLA chapters win at NY State Leadership Conference

on April 13, 2021

The NYS FBLA State Leadership Conference was held virtually in early April. Monroe-Woodbury FBLA Chapters at the high school and middle school enjoyed a very successful competition in individual and group events including: written tests, oral presentations and group video presentations, created within a short time frame on a specific topic. This was particularly challenging in a virtual environment with team members synchronizing their work and creating their videos online.

Club Advisor Mrs. Palkaunieks was excited with the success of the students, “With the challenging year the kids have had to endure, it is so nice to be able to see positive things happening!”

All 1st through 3rd place winners qualify for FBLA Nationals at the end of June with the exception of the Program of Work events, which are state level competitions. Qualifying for Nationals were Daniel Luo, Khushi Girish, Varsha Jegan, Sophia Yoon, Visakhi Miriapalli, Jeter Sison (3 events), Diya Mangatt, Mathew Graves, Jenna Rowan-Delson, Miriam Oke, Emily Wang, Charles Liu and Rohan Sonakya. In the NY State level competitions, both the High School and Middle School teams were winners, with the Middle School also scoring a second place and Emily Taveras named in third place.

In addition, two Monroe-Woodbury students were elected NY State FBLA officers for next year: Matthew Edelstein will be the Executive Vice President; and Zongyuan Derek Li will be the Vice President for District 3N.

Congratulations to all the winners!
