Penn Yan Academy’s Future Business Leaders of America will be hosting its first annual Teacher’s Tip-Off on Thursday, Jan. 18. The event was postponed from Jan. 4 due to inclement weather.
This event will be a basketball game featuring Penn Yan School district teachers and faculty playing each other to raise money for the Penn Yan FBLA chapter. The game will take place in the academy gymnasium at 305 Court St in Penn Yan, tip-off will be at 7. Those seeking a chance to show off their own skills may come early to participate in pre-game contests starting at 6:30. Admission is $2 for all ages.

Headquartered in Reston, Va., FBLA allows students to compete on local, state and, national levels, in areas such as business, finance, accounting, public speaking, marketing and much more! More than a competitive group for business students, FBLA helps students connect with other teens their age across their state and the U.S.
