SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – Members of the Evangel University chapter of Phi Beta Lambda recently participated in the organization’s annual statewide competitive events, with seven students taking first-place honors.

First, second and third-place winners will be eligible to represent Evangel at PBL’s National Leadership Conference in Nashville, Tenn., June 24-27. Nine students plan to attend the conference.

Since all 50 competitive event categories are sponsored by businesses, the top five winners in all categories have the opportunity to win $1,000 per event at this summer’s national competition.
