Wellsville FBLA American Enterprise Day
On American Enterprise Day, FBLA and PBL members celebrate and publicize the American free enterprise system. Chapters around the nation take a day to celebrate this event through activities, festivities, and projects.
Wellsville FBLA has been involved with this event for five years. Members of our chapter take half of their day to present various workshops to our local fifth graders. These workshops vary from communication skills, landing the job, and marketing products. At each workshop the group of fifth graders received information through a Power Point, hands on activities, or several games that practiced the skills they were learning.
With 43 FBLA members participating the following were presented by our members: “You be the Jury”, “Communication is Key”, “Landing that Job”, “Logos, Slogans, and Jingles: The Impact They Make”, “Dress for Success”, “Marketing Your Product”, “Do You Know Business?”, “Risk vs. Return”, “Making the Most of Your Choices”, and “Future Inventors” . All of these workshops were evaluated by the teachers and the fifth graders. The reviews showed we held an extremely successful day for our chapter and the fifth graders.
Wellsville FBLA believes that it is important to inform our younger students about the business world and help them develop the best habits and teach them how to build and utilize their skills. Our goal at the end of the day was to produce a fun and informative event for our fifth graders. Based off of the evaluations, Wellsville FBLA had yet another successful American Enterprise Day.

Below is a description of what our Commissioner of Education, Dr. Randy Watson has been
working on this last two years. He, along with State Board of Education Members traveled the
state to ask questions about what education should look like in Kansas. This is the information
they have published and adopted. We are working to fulfill this vision of Kansas education and
are excited to say we had started a movement in this direction already. It will be a long process
but I am very proud of our students, teachers and the community support for this movement.
