SARASOTA, May 17, 2017 – Sarasota High School students attended the State Leadership Conference of the Future Business Leaders of America in Orlando with 4,900 other Florida FBLA students in March. They attended workshops and competed in business-related events such as business communication, business presentation, business procedures, business law and programming events.       

An SHS team of Jan Fic, Hailey Ballard and John Peachey placed second in the state in the computer game development competition. They will represent Florida at the FBLA National Leadership Conference June 29 in Anaheim, Calif.

The game the students created is called Crime Time. It is an animated computer game that requires players to complete five missions. The object is to have a robber collect as many coins as possible as they run through each level while being pursued by police. 

The students developed the game from September through December 2016.  They won first place in a district contest to qualify to compete at the state conference.

Teacher Jennifer Blasdel is requesting contributions to help defray expenses for students to attend the Anaheim competition. She can be reached at

Sarasota High School is located at 1000 S. School Ave., Sarasota.
