The Missouri Future Business Leaders of America-Phi Beta Lambda State Leadership Conference that was scheduled to take place April 19-21 in Springfield, will be taking place. However, Chris Dzurick,  state adviser and event planner for Missouri FBLA-PBL says it will be held virtually.

The timeline has been adjusted.

This will allow students to continue with the competitions that were planned and for judging to take place without anyone leaving their homes. Students from more than 400 schools around the state will submit answers to questions and film speeches and demonstrations and upload them over the next several days. Judging begins at 5:30 p.m. April 23 with scoring taking place remotely through April 30. A panel of 28 volunteer judges from the Springfield area will evaluate submissions in a variety of subject areas, including journalism, client service, business ethics, public speaking, sales presentations and many others.
