Littleton High School Future Business Leaders of America is celebrating their annual Promotion Week, beginning today, Feb. 5-11. Look for posters, flyers and displays around town, along with radio interviews. Take a look around and learn a little more about FBLA.

New Hampshire FBLA supports many non-profit organizations. Chapters throughout the state are supporting the New Hampshire Make-A-Wish Foundation with their Chance for Change Piggy Bank Contest. They have also recently completed a 40 Miles in 40 Days challenge to raise money and awareness for the American Diabetes Association. Among other organizations supported by NH FBLA are the New Hampshire Breast Cancer Coalition, with Pink Hair for Cancer, and the American Red Cross.

Recently, Littleton's FBLA organized a blood drive, along with Littleton National Honor Society and Health Occupation Students of America (HOSA) for the American Red Cross. Littleton FBLA created a homemade Plinko game (similar to the one seen on "The Price is Right") with the help of the Building Trades students to support New Hampshire Make-A-Wish Foundation. Other organizations supported by Littleton FBLA include David's House and March of Dimes.

Littleton FBLA has also been doing many fundraisers for their upcoming State Leadership Conference in March. Recent fundraisers have been Littleton-Opoly, available at Gold House Pizza, Littleton Area Chamber of Commerce and Littleton High School, and Flock Fest 2011. These fundraisers help reduce costs for members to compete in events such as Emerging Business Issues, Digital Video Production, Business Plan, Electronic Career Portfolio, and many more.

At the State Leadership Conference, chapters are ranked by the number of points received during various activities. The top three schools receive the honor of Gold Seal Chapter. Littleton FBLA has been a Gold Seal Chapter for the past three years.

Promotion Week is a great time for chapters to earn points towards Gold Seal Chapter. It is also great to get the word out about all that FBLA does. Activities planned for the week include presentations in the school and at area organizations, a breakfast social for the Career and Technical students, banners and flyers throughout the school, television and radio interviews, and much more. Littleton FBLA thanks all who help support their many causes and events.
