International DECA Competition
From April 26th-28th, 18,000 DECA members from across the globe participated in the International DECA Competition in Orlando, Florida. There were approximately 50 different events that these students qualified in at their state/country level in order to move on and compete at the international level. These students were competing to win not only awards and accolades, but also scholarships and cash prizes. Students from all 50 states in the U.S. competed, and students from Spain, Germany, China, South Korea, Puerto Rico, Guam, and Canada competed as well.
Chandler High DECA had 5 students qualify to compete in 4 different events. Of those 5 students, Bradley Gustoff made it to the final round in the Professional Selling Event and went on to compete for top honors. He earned Top 20 in his event out of 200 teams. Brad completed a 100 question multiple choice exam and presented a 15 minutes sales pitch on "activity trackers".
Competition at this level is extremely tough and we are all very proud of Brad and his accomplishment. To say that he is Top 20 in the world in DECA is an amazing achievement! Way to go, Brad!
