BPA stands for Business Professionals of America, BPA has over 45,000 members in the nation as well as over 77 different events that you can compete in. Our High Schools chapter consist of 55 kids from our school. That is a third of our school! All of these kids are led by Chapter Advisor Spencer Christensen. “I am always pleased with our BPA students and how well they perform.  BPA is the favorite part of my job as I get to see the students outside of the classroom setting and watch them do their best to portray their skills. It’s especially awesome to see someone discover an ability or skill that they didn’t think they had. Even the students whose names do not appear in the results, get something out of participation in BPA and competing against other students. That is what it is really about. It doesn’t matter if you place or not, but if you gain skills and experience that you can use in the world outside of the classroom.” At BPA events they require you to dress professionally, for girls that means a dress shirt and nice skirt or dress pants, for boys a dress shirt, tie, and slacks. Before regionals you pick two events you feel confident you can do well in, whether that be individual events, meaning you compete by yourself, or team events, where you and other members of your team all work together. Regionals was held at the ISU College of Technology in Pocatello Idaho. At the end of the day everyone gathered together for the awards ceremony. For individual events they only take the top three to state, for team events they take the top 2 teams.
