DECA Does it Again

Over 190 LHS DECA members attended the first round of competition by competing at Districts this past week. DECA in an international marketing organization that prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs for careers in marketing, finance, hospitality and management in high schools and colleges around the globe.


LHS DECA members competed in 30 different events with 1,600 other members from their region. They completed a computerized test and roleplay scenarios in a given marketing, finance, or entrepreneurship event. LHS DECA brought home 34 instructional awards and 55 members won a spot to compete at the DECA State Leadership Conference to be held this March! These LHS DECA members will now compete with members from all over the state for an opportunity to compete at the DECA International Career Development Conference in Orlando, Florida this coming April.
