DECA Students Win at Regional Competition
The Aquinas Institute DECA team had great results at the Regional High School DECA Competition held recently at Rochester Institute of Technology.
After presenting their business plans to local business leaders who served as competition judges, Aquinas won in the categories of Travel & Tourism, Business Law & Ethics, and Entrepreneurship.
Winning members now have the opportunity to travel and compete in the 2019 International Career Development Conference in Orlando, Florida this spring. Students who did not qualify for this competition at Regionals will have another opportunity to do so at the State DECA Competition to be held in Rochester in March.
Congratulations to our winners!
