McIntyre finishes third in Future Business Leaders of America graphic design competition

VAN BUREN, Maine — Van Buren Regional Technology Center is pleased to announce that Emberlie McIntyre recently earned a third-place finish in the Future Business Leaders of America Graphic Design State Competition. 

FBLA is a nonprofit educational association for middle school, high school and collegiate students who are interested in learning more about the free enterprise system.

In the FBLA competition,  McIntyre was tasked with creating a pamphlet where she mimicked a menu for a fictional restaurant. She then presented this pamphlet and her ideas to a panel of judges via a Zoom meeting. 

This is the first year that students have competed in this competition. The technology center thanked Steve Thibodeau, FBLA adviser and business teacher, for bringing this opportunity to the students.
