DECA District results hit a new mark

47 Marketing Students from Career Center qualify for DECA State

Pete Eichholz, Anne Hickman and Scott Fuenfhausen, DECA Advisors for Columbia Area Career Center, are proud to announce the results of the DECA District 2 competition that was held on Thursday, February 20 at the Holiday Inn Executive Center in Columbia. More than 250 students from District 2 competed in the day-long event including DECA members from Battle, Hickman and Rock Bridge DECA chapters. Students finishing the top two in each event advance to the State Career Development Conference on March 16 for the chance to move on to Nationals which will be held in Atlanta, GA in May.

The DECA competition is divided into two parts. Students first take an exam which tests basic marketing knowledge. The second portion of the competition is “role play” where students are given a marketing situation in which they must develop a solution and then present that solution to a judge who rates their solution. The final score is a combination of the two parts.
