FBLA American Enterprise Project

February 24, 2021

The Syracuse High School FBLA chapter recently hosted a contest for students in grades kindergarten through sixth to bring awareness to the students about American Enterprise. The contest was to promote saving money for the lower grades. For the older kids, the contest encouraged them to think about what they want to be when they grow up. 

FBLA members visited the second and third grades to educate them about American Enterprise and how they can save their money. The members then made paper piggy banks with the kids and put a nickel in each bank to help them start saving. 

Kindergarten, first, and second graders were given coloring sheets that promoted saving money. The third and fourth graders were asked to draw a picture of what they want to be when they are older. The fifth and sixth graders dressed up as what they want to be in the future. 

FBLA members judged the different projects and picked the winners. A child from each class won in kindergarten, first, and second grade. First and second place from each class of third and fourth grade received prizes, and the top three winners from both fifth and sixth grade received a prize. FBLA members awarded the students with gift certificates that were donated by Dairy Chef.

Winners in the coloring contest from kindergarten were Thomas Hauschild, Reagan Bischoff, and Grady Wiebusch.  The first grade winners were Lucy Lessmann, Oliver Wilhelm, and Evelyn Gottula.  Second grade contest winners were Reagan McIntosh, Harper Wilhelm, and Hadley Bakan. 

First place winners for the poster contest from third grade were Levi Woods, Avery Dilley, Madison Oelke. Second place winners Makenzie Stewart, Emma Kirchhoff, and Maci Nash.


First place winners for fourth grade were Baylor Borer, Mckenzie Jones, and Kirstin Knake. Second place winners were Mataya Petersen, Emmie Johnson, and Mckenna Schroeder. 

The top three places for fifth grade and what they dressed up as were Pressley Wilhelm, first place as a marine biologist; second, Mason Flores as a paleontologist; and third, Natalie Wemhoff as an astronaut. In the sixth grade, Brody Hitzemann placed first dressing up as the President of the United States; second place was Will Simon as an engineer; and third place was Brock Goebel as a wrestler.
