DECA students heading to competition

On December 9th, 71 members of George Washington’s DECA club will be participating in PA DECA District 10’s regional competition at our School District Administrative Building where several hundred students are expected. 

Our students will be taking a rigorous 100-question written test on subjects such as finance, business administration, marketing, accounting and entrepreneurship, and they will perform a role-play in front of judges as part of their competition.   High scores on the tests and role-plays will determine the winners of more than 20 competitive events.  Students who place 1st, 2nd and 3rd in their events will earn the opportunity to compete at the state level in Hershey in February.  Check back here soon for a list of winners.  We are sure many of our students will be heading to Hershey!

DECA is a student organization which  prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs in marketing, finance, hospitality and management in high schools and colleges around the globe.  For more information on DECA, see   padeca.org.  While there, check out the picture of GWHS senior Eric Smith who has been our District’s state representative for the past 3 years.   Further information is available at the national site for DECA.
