The West Salem DECA chapter came home with success after attending the DECA State Career Development Conference in Lake Geneva, WI. Thirty-two competitors went, and 17 of them are moving on to the International Career Development Conference (ICDC) in Nashville.
As part of the conference, students competed in business role-plays. The role-plays were designed to test critical thinking skills and were evaluated by an industry professional.
Participants also competed by creating advertising campaigns, business prospectuses and research projects.
The 17 students moving on to ICDC in April will not only compete, but also participate in leadership and career advancement activities.
“DECA prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs for careers in marketing, finance, hospitality and management in high schools and colleges around the globe,” as stated on their website.
