At Homestead, Future Business Leaders of America members participate in written, speaking, and coding competitions at the regional, state, and national levels. In the last decade and a half, Homestead has enjoyed tremendous success, winning thirteen unofficial sweepstakes at the national level and sixteen consecutive ones at the state level. In 2014, Homestead students placed first at five events in Nashville during the national conference.
Aside from competitions, members have the opportunity to join three projects. The American Enterprise project educates the community on general business subjects, Community Service members help local causes, and Partnership with Business works with local businesses. Refer to the projects’ pages for more information.
With almost 300 members, Homestead FBLA offers students a way to network and connect with a variety of other Homestead students from all four grade levels. Community service events such as Step Out to Diabetes and exciting socials like the annual Broomball games in December allow members to bond with each other and meet alumni.
