Beebe Jr. High FBLA is District V Champions for the 7th year in a row by winning the Middle-Level District V FBLA Spring Competitions at UCA in Conway on May 4, 2016.

Beebe Junior High FBLA finished first in the competition with 115 points. Points are given according to how each chapter places in each event. 1st place receives 5 points, 2nd place receives 4 points, 3rd place receives 3 points, 4th place receives 2 points, and 5th place receives 1 point. If the chapter does not finish in the top five places out of the 30 schools competing, then zero points are awarded. Beebe placed in 24 of 30 events including 17 first place, two second place, six third place, one fourth place, and two fifth place finish.

Several members not only placed in the district, but also placed in the top five in the state. Cheyenne Gibson, Harlee Hill, Lily McCoy, Ty McClean, and Jackson Toney did so well on their individual District V Competition they received state recognition, which is very difficult to accomplish.

Two of the members also received National Recognition by finishing 1st in the state. Cheyenne Gibson and Harlee Hill were awarded National Recognition which is the highest award to achieve at the Junior High FBLA Middle-Level. The Beebe Chapter also received National Recognition for American Enterprise Project, Outstanding Chapter of Merit, and 2nd largest Middle-Level FBLA Chapter in the Nation with 255 members.
