Congratulations to Weston DECA!

Congratulations the students who participated in the DECA state competition.  As with our district competition in January, this one was held virtually.  The students submitted their papers or role-play presentations virtually instead of live in front of a judge.  At our awards ceremony held last Thursday those that finished in the top 12 of their category were recognized as finalists and those who finished in the top 5 qualify for our International Career Development Conference in April. 

The students have put in a lot of work to get here and I am so proud of the work they have done.  

Congrats to all!
