Cicero-North Syracuse High School DECA Places 31 at Regionals

The 2017-2018 Regional DECA competition was held on December 19, 2017, at Lemoyne College.  Region 9 DECA’s membership this year consisted of over 500 students competing for top honors. Competitors came from eleven high schools across Central New York.  The high schools competing this year include: Phoenix, Norwich, Henninger, Liverpool, Solvay, Central Square, East Syracuse-Minoa, Fowler, Skaneateles, Nottingham, and Cicero-North Syracuse High School. 

The future marketing/management leaders’ events consist of a 100-question college level marketing/management test and a role-play with a member of the business community.  The role-play is given to the students during competition and they have a 10 or 20 minute preparation period to generate solutions to the business problem presented to them.  Once the time is over, they have to present their answers to a member of the business community who serves as a judge.

C-NS students won three first place awards, 10 second place awards, 11 third place awards, five fourth place awards, and two fifth place awards.  A total of 31 students have now qualified for the state competition that will be held March 7 – 9 in Rochester, NY.  Below is a list of the winners and their events:
