Students in the Lyons Township High School Business Professionals of America Club recently competed in regional contests and 44 qualified to compete at the state level.
Students performed well in a variety of categories including parliamentary procedures, database applications, fundamental spreadsheets, banking and finance and computer network technology.
Club members qualified for state competition in 23 categories. Three teams will advance: a six-person parliamentary procedure team; a four-person administrative support team; and a four-person financial analyst team. Fifteen of the state qualifiers will compete in two categories. Lyons Township earned 22 first-place finishes, 13 second-place finishes and eight third-place finishes.
