WHEN: 10 a.m. Friday, June 30
8:30 a.m. Saturday, July 1

WHERE: Anaheim Convention Center
800 W. Katella Ave., Anaheim

DETAILS: Founded in 1940, FBLA brings business and students together through leadership and career development programs.

Gabrielino students will present and defend the development process of their business proposals before a panel of judges; seniors Bianca Lee and Emily Wang will present publication design projects, and sophomores Casey Lee and Jin Lee will showcase their graphic design skills.

Sophomore Katherine Xie and senior Victoria Nea will also vie for top points in the business communication and public speaking events, respectively.
