On March 10, 11, and 12, over 1500 Business Professionals of America members competed at the State level.  These students came from schools all over the state of Montana. The competition included AA, A, B, and C schools. Nineteen Red Lodge students competed in a variety of events. Nine students made it on to the National Competition. They will be heading to Anaheim May 1-5. We feel like we have a strong team this year and hope to give a good showing for Montana. Our fundraising efforts are now ramping up as we try to get these students funded for their trip. Please support the students by buying raffle tickets, attending our meal at the Carbon Fork on April 14, or choosing to sponsor part of this team!
