This year’s Future Business Leaders of America members at Bowdon High School in Bowdon, Georgia went to teach first graders about American Enterprise day. They made a presentation to explain what it represented and how it has an input on society. A time-honored tradition, American Enterprise Day reminds Americans of free enterprise and how it has contributed positively to the economy. Proclaimed to be observed by American president Jimmy Carter, American Enterprise Day lets students as well as adults learn the fundamentals and values of starting a business and the chances taken. Celebrated on November 15, FBLA takes this opportunity each year to educate and help prepare students for careers in business.
Giving the students an opportunity to increase confidence and work ethic, this day is crucial to the knowledge they possess to go out and pursue their own business ventures.
