On Friday the 15th, the area schools met in Westran to compete in the Future Business Leaders of America district competition. 20 schools were represented and they ranged from small schools to large schools and career/technical training centers. Our Hallsville students took online tests before the competition date and then some performed in speaking events in front of judges on Friday.
We are proud to announce that Hallsville took 3rd place overall and we are sending the largest group onto the state level competition in the past decade. The top 2 in online tests and only the top 1 in performance events are allowed to advance to the next level, but all of the participants contributed to our great team score.
