Please Congratulate The Following DECA Members

May 2, 2017

Please congratulate the following students who accomplished great things at the 2017 DECA International Career Development Conference last week.

2nd place in the nation – Lizzie Johnson and Anna Peterson – Hospitality Team Decision Making Event
2nd place in the nation – Sydney Hansen – Hotel Lodging Series Event

Placing in the top 10 overall in the nation (4–10th place) was
Erin Smith and Alli Peterson – Marketing Communications Team Decision Making Event
Brynn Tonn and Katie Turner – Buying and Merchandising Team Decision Making Event

Placing just outside the top 10 but inside the top 20 (11–20th place) was
Paige Zemke – Apparel and Accessories Series Event

Alex Wood had a test score that was top 10 overall out of 200 students in the Sports Marketing Team Decision Making Event

Each event starts with over 200 students competing from across the nation. Each student takes a very difficult comprehensive business competency exam and completes a role play/ case study which can be compared to situational interview that is used often by companies in the hiring process. In these role plays, the students only have 30 minutes to complete the role play and must incorporate various business concepts into their solution. The students do not know what the scenario is about or what they have to incorporate into their solution until they sit down for the 30 minutes to compete.

Also competing at this conference but placing just outside of the top 20 was
Ellie Sprouls and Gigi Freking – Sports Marketing Team Decision Making Event
Jake Smith and Alex Wood – Sports Marketing Team Decision Making Event Anna Wise – Human Resource Management
Tanya Ramesch – Elevate Leadership Academy.

Have a great day!
