DECA Goes Top 10 at International

May 15, 2019

Wakeland High School DECA.Dozens of Frisco ISD DECA students traveled to Orlando to compete at the International Career Development Conference (ICDC). Eighteen thousand high school students, advisors, alumni and businesspeople from around the world gathered in the interest of future-ready learning.

During ICDC, DECA members had the opportunity to demonstrate their college and career readiness by participating in DECA’s Competitive Events Program in the areas of marketing, finance, hospitality, management and entrepreneurship.

Frisco ISD students qualified to attend the event based on their superior performance at the state competition earlier this spring.

Most notably, several students placed in the top 10 of their events and Lebanon Trail High School had its first team win an event.

Congratulations to all of the students, finalists and winners at this year’s ICDC competition.
