eDynamic Learning Announces the DECA, FBLA, BPA, FCCLA, Virtual Business, and the Passion to Purpose Scholarship Program High School Student Winners

October 31, 2022

SOUTHLAKE, TexasMay 10, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — eDynamic Learning, the largest provider of college and career readiness curriculum solutions for middle schools through college, announces its high school scholarship recipients from DECA, FBLA, BPA, FCCLA, All-Access Virtual Business Challenge, and the Passion to Purpose Scholarship Program.

54,753 high school students from around the U.S. and internationally participated this school year for a chance to win a scholarship from eDynamic Learning. Students had a variety of opportunities to participate and receive a scholarship including writing an essay, delivering a presentation, and competing in a 15-minute simulation competition virtually, and in person. The most nail-biting and intense experiences are the final round of the Knowledge Matters Virtual Business Challenge (VBC) simulation competitions where students are given only 15 minutes to help their simulated business thrive and implement strategies around pricing, purchasing, merchandising, productivity, advertising, finances, and so much more. Students not only value the funding they receive through these scholarships opportunities but often appreciate the recognition even more.

Career Technical Student Organizations (CTSOs) such as DECA Inc., Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA), Business Professionals of America (BPA) and Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) regularly encourage their students to participate in Virtual Business Challenges from Knowledge Matters. Teachers and advisors indicate the scholarship opportunities not only allow students to gain employability skills, they also help motivate students during class and enable them to make connections between school and a career.

“Students who participate in career technical education programs are graduating five to ten percent higher than students who aren’t. We’re excited to be a part of helping students find success in high school as well as in their future education and careers endeavors.” said Maureen Ginley, General Manager of the Knowledge Matters division of eDynamic Learning.

eDynamic Learning’s scholarship programs are part of the company’s Recognition & Rewards Program and their commitment to recognizing exceptional school programs.  We congratulate these remarkable students, their teachers, and the schools that offered their students these opportunities.
