Students from four Carroll County high schools competed in events testing their business knowledge and skills during the Maryland Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) State Leadership Conference. More than 1,000 students in chapters from 5 regions and over 50 Maryland high schools participated.

Students could choose from over 60 different competitive events, ranging from Digital Video Production and Word Processing to Accounting and Sports Management.
