On February 14, seventeen business students along with their teacher, Cindy Talley, traveled to Lincoln to compete at the American Business Competition Day sponsored by UNL Phi Beta Lambda. Over 420 students attended the annual competition day from 31 schools ranging from Class A to D in size. Throughout the morning, students competed in two events of their choice.
Following test taking, schools were then divided into quiz bowl groups. Ryan Poppert, Braden Myers, and Wyatt Nun represented Fillmore Central in the small school division. After a close match against Harvard, the team went on to take first place by defeating Adam Central, Raymond Central and Johnson County Central teams.
At the end of the day, awards were presented to the top five students in each event. Fillmore Central students receiving recognition included Braden Myers, fifth in Accounting I and second in Parliamentary Procedure; Ethan Reinsch, fourth in Business Calculations; Wyatt Nun, fourth in FBLA Principles and Procedures; and Tori Stoldorf, third in Global Business.
