Tuesday, February 21, 2012
Camas High School will once again have strong representation at the state DECA contest in March.
DECA, a business and marketing club, had 125 students compete at an area competition in Longview. Of those, 72 qualified for state by winning awards.
Each student chose a particular marketing event where they competed in two event-specific role plays and one marketing based test. These scores were tallied at the end of the day where awards were distributed.
Overall, CHS had 79 different students win awards, ranging from first- to sixth-place in each sub-category and 60 overall category medal recipients. Those who received medals in the overall category qualified for the State Career Development Conference and will compete Thursday through Saturday, March 8-10 in Bellevue, Wash.
