Fostoria DECA Members Shine at the District Competition

Fostoria High School Marketing Education students competed in the District II DECA Competition on Tuesday, the 24th of January.   DECA, which is a co-curricular student organization, is for students interested in business and marketing.  Students compete in a variety of different events including advertising, promotions, hospitality, finance, business administration and marketing.  Most events require students to take a 100 question objective test and complete a role-play where a business problem or situation is solved.

Students placing 5th or higher are recognized at the competition and students that place in the top three or four (depending on the event) advance to the state DECA competition, which will be held in Columbus on March 17th and 18th.
