Montana BPA once again had an unbelievable year with members being recognized for their community service involvement. Montana BPA was awarded the 2022 Professional Cup for the Secondary Level which is the most prestigious honor a state can receive!

The BPA Cares Program recognizes schools that participated in service-learning programs: marketing and public relations, as well as chapter activities award of excellence. Our Lincoln Public Schools was recognized for their community service efforts with their highway clean-up done with the Ponderosa Snow Warriors, our Special Olympics fundraising and the annual clothing giveaway done at the end of the school year for students.

Members attended leadership training workshops, participated in service-learning activities, volunteered and competed in the Workplace Skills Assessment Program. Both Damion Birkholz, our Chapter President, and Delia Tolan, our Chapter Secretary, served as interns at the conference. They were able to work different events to better understand what happens behind the scenes.

Business Professionals of America is the leading Career and Technical Student Organization for student pursuing careers in business management, office administration, information technology, health administration and other related career fields.

Our BPA chapter would like to take a moment to thank the Lincoln community and beyond who helped make this experience possible. We are humbled by the amount of generous support our chapter received to help create more opportunities for these students! We hope to continue growing this chapter and making more opportunities and memories with this outstanding organization.

Thank you for all of the support!
