C-NS DECA has regional success

The 2010-2011 Regional DECA competition was held on Dec. 21 at Lemoyne College. This year, Region 9 DECA membership consisted of 450 students competing from eleven high schools across Central New York, as well as North Syracuse Junior High School. The high schools competing this year include Solvay, Phoenix, Henninger, Liverpool, J-D, Central Square, Bishop Grimes, East Syracuse-Minoa, Fowler, Nottingham, and Cicero-North Syracus.

The future marketing/management leaders events consisted of a 100-question college level marketing/management test and role-playing with a member of the business community. During role-play, the students had a 10 or 20 minute preparation period to generate solutions to the business problem presented to them. Once the time was up, they had to present their answers to a member of the business community who served as a judge.

C-NS had a total of 13 first place awards, 4 second place awards, 4 third place awards, and 2 fourth place awards. A total of 23 students have now qualified for the state competition that will be held March 9 - 11 in Rochester. Below is a list of the winners and their events:
