Continuing a tradition of excellence, Southeast Missouri State University students won 18 awards in individual, chapter and team events at the State Phi Beta Lambda Leadership Conference April 12-13 in Springfield, Missouri.

Southeast’s Zeta Alpha Lambda chapter of Future Business Leaders of America-Phi Beta Lambda (FBLA-PBL) garnered seven first-place, five second-place, two third-place, two fourth-place and five fifth-place finishes.

Eleven Southeast students participated in this year’s conference and competition.

“Thanks to their success, all of the students have qualified to compete at the National Leadership Conference in San Antonio, Texas, in June,” said Dr. Dana Schwieger, professor of management information systems (MIS) in Southeast’s Department of Accounting and faculty advisor for Southeast’s FBLA-PBL.

The conference provided students with an opportunity to hear presentations on leadership, network, run for state leadership positions and participate in competitive events. Representatives from 13 chapters across Missouri participated in the business-oriented competitive event portion of the program.

The Southeast chapter was awarded first place for the Local Chapter Annual Business Report. The annual report was prepared and submitted by Nicole Bauman and Skyler Ring of Ste. Genevieve, Missouri. Known as the Hamden L. Forkner Award, this honor recognizes chapters that effectively summarize their year’s activities. The event provides participants with valuable experience in preparing business reports.

The chapter also received the Gold Chapter Award of Merit, known as the Hollis and Kitty Guy Award, which recognizes outstanding local chapters that have actively participated in projects and programs identified with the goals of FBLA-PBL. Missouri only has two Gold Seal Chapters each year.
