Student report by Jonah Sparks and Tyler Hubbard:

Most notably from the competition two students, Fred Slusher and Amanda Bowman, received exceptionally high scores getting 93 out of 100 on their role-play team event. One of the judges said “these students performed exceptionally well for their first time in a DECA competition and are not just state worthy they are ready for nationals in Salt Lake City.”

At the opening ceremony DECA treated participants to a very surprising opening. Three state officers opened up dancing to a very popular song “Party Rock Anthem”. Later they also had a special minute to win it competition between all DECA chapters in which the participants from each chapter did various activities such as a scavenger hunt, pencil toss, and an Oreo race.

During the opening ceremony, the Lynn Camp DECA chapter received a second place award for largest regional chapter membership and a third place largest regional chapter increase.
