153 members of Sparta DECA took on the role of business professionals at the Regional competition on January 9 at Ramapo College. In DECA, students are to report to a role-play event in which they must solve a problem pertaining to marketing, business operations or finance where they assume the role of a professional in the business world. Sparta students were very well prepared for the event, spending weeks before regionals asking questions and practicing pre role-plays in their marketing classes. Talking to Sparta students after their competitive event, many said they felt very confident in their ability and did better than they had anticipated.
Students who perform well at Regionals move on to the State level competition in Atlantic City from February 21 - February 23 in Atlantic City. Forward, the students who succeed as the top three in their event at states can qualify for the International Career Development Conference, the national level, in Anaheim, California.
