C-NS DECA Has Regional Success! 20 Students Qualify for February's State Competition

The 2019-2020 Regional DECA competition was held on December 17 at Le Moyne College. Region 9 DECA’s membership this year consisted of over 500 students, from 11 high schools across Central New York. This year's participating schools included: Phoenix, Norwich, Henninger, Liverpool, Solvay, Central Square, East Syracuse-Minoa, Fowler, Skaneateles, Nottingham, North Syracuse Junior High School 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 earned seven first place awards, three second place awards, three third place awards, and three fourth place awards. Additionally, C-NS students raised the most money for the Annual Penny War contest, for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. A total of 20 students have now qualified for the state competition that will be held February 26 – 28 in Rochester, NY.
