LITTLETON, N.H. -- Littleton High School's Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) attended the 41st annual Fall Leadership Workshop recently at Daniel Webster College in Nashua, N.H. Great leadership skills were learned throughout the course of the day.
The day began with a large group workshop based on the hit TV series, The Apprentice. Small groups were formed and given a specific set of materials: plastic cups, Styrofoam bowls, pipe cleaners and tongue depressors. The two teams from Littleton built a playhouse and a game called Flying Saucers, which combined Frisbee and bowling. It was this inventive design that won Littleton a second-place prize. The groups continued on to individual workshops, including Interview Do's and Don'ts, Homeland Security, Air Traffic Control, Sports Management, Money Money and more.
The group reconvened after lunch when awards were presented. Littleton's FBLA members received several prestigious awards: Hannah Lavoie and Olivia Paradice accepted the third-place award for their piggy bank design. The bank incorporated the National FBLA theme this year, "Igniting Innovation," as well as the National Diabetes Foundation's theme, "Step Out for Diabetes."; three-year member Heather Fillion accepted the Gold Seal Chapter Award. The award recognizes the chapters from the previous year who earned the most point by being active and taking part in state wide challenges and competitions. The Littleton Chapter impressed the state when the small school took second place overall the previous year.
FBLA members include Seniors Dori Horne, Sydney Pinard, Haley Smith and Heather Fillion; juniors Morgan Brown, Hannah Lavoie and Olivia Paradice; sophomores Samantha Bews, Phebe Lahout, Tianna Sparks and Nick Bray; and freshmen Allie Horne.
