Every student also participated in an “Apprentice”-based activity. Participants got into groups and created an invention using only the materials that were provided. All inventions were judged by a panel of judges; winners were announced at the end of the workshop.

In addition, schools were encouraged to create a shoe-themed piggy bank to raise money for the American Diabetes Association. Overall, FBLA raised more than $1,000.
