Dozens of C-NS students place at Regional Competition

The 2018-2019 Regional DECA competition was held on December 18, 2018, at LeMoyne College. Region 9 DECA’s membership this year consisted of more than 500 students participating in some very tough competitions. Those students come from eleven high schools across Central New York, including: 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.
Students from C-NS took home more than 30 awards including 13 first place, 14 second place, three third place, and two fourth place awards. A total of 32 students have now qualified for the state competition that will be held March 6 – 8 in Rochester, NY. Below is a list of the winners and their events. Congratulations to all participants!
