Franklin’s DECA team competed in its annual District Competition Tuesday, January 8th and Wednesday, January 9th at the Mansfield Holiday Inn.

 

DECA is Franklin High School’s “business” club.  The organization itself “prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs for careers in marketing, finance, hospitality and management in high schools and colleges around the globe,” according to DECA’s website.  It’s a great way to practice problem-solving and public speaking while having fun about a subject you’re interested in.

 

At the competition, students are registered under different events, each one specialized to a specific type of business or business plan.  If you’re into sports, there are sports marketing events. If you’re into international business, there is an international business event. DECA has something for everyone.

 

On Tuesday, about 60 students left the school in the morning and competed until nearly 2:00pm, then came awards.  Tuesday’s competition focused on written project events and individual roleplay events. For more information about DECA’s competitive events, check out their website.

 

38 students qualified for States on Tuesday.  The list of qualifiers can be found at the bottom of this article.  Congratulations to all those who qualified!

 

On Wednesday, about 45 students competed.  This day focused on team roleplays. Of the 45 students who went, 7 qualified for States.  Congratulations to those students as well!

 

Massachusetts’ DECA State Competition will be held March 7th-9th at the Hynes Convention Center in the Prudential Building in Boston.  Good luck to all those competing!
