Students from all over the state converge today at the Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue for the DECA State Career Development Conference having qualified earlier this year locally. According to the website:
Competitive events provide student members the opportunity for hands-on learning through competition in business and marketing applications.
In January, students compete within Washington DECA’s eleven geographic areas. The top place winners per event from each area earn the privilege of competing at the Washington DECA State Career Development Conference. In 2011, Washington DECA had more than 3,400 students and advisors in attendance. Over 500 volunteers from the business community donated their time and talent to judge these students, determining who qualified to move on to the International Career Development Conference in Orlando, Florida.
Mid-Columbia Insurance wishes all the competitors best of luck!
