Big Foot High School's FBLA chapter has three main components that students participate in.
Students are able to choose a competitive event that they would like to participate in during the year. There are a total of 71 events students can participate in ranging from an objective test to a presentation to a project. Students start their competition at regionals, which is held the first Saturday in February. If students qualify for the state competition, it will be held in late March or early April. If students then qualify for the national competition, it will be held on June 29 - July 2.
Each year, our chapter participates in one to two major field trips. Past field trips have included trips to Madison, Milwaukee, Chicago, and Green Bay. During each field trip, our students meet with industry professionals in a wide range of careers.
Our chapter also has a community service component where students are given the opportunity to provide service in and around the Big Foot local communities.
