Barrack’s DECA team left Wednesday 21 to go to the Hershey Lodge where DECA state competition was held. The first day consisted of testing for participant’s categories and the kick off of the opening session for the competition which consisted of energetic music and introduction to the state officer team. The next day, everyone competed at various times for their events. This included either presenting two role plays or sharing a pre-written entry with a professional in the field. There was also a huge array of empowering workshops for members to attend including one from Men’s Warehouse, Penn State, and Citizens bank. In their free time, students go to take a bus to Hershey world and the outlets. Following dinner, were the mini awards ceremony where Andy Jacoby ’24 and Chloe Hockfield ’24 advanced to finals for their category and Ben Martin ’25 and Jessie Singer ’26 won awards for their performances. To end the night, there was a DECA dance where participants got to meet other DECA members and celebrate finishing the competition. On Friday, Barrack attended the Grand Awards ceremony where Ben Marton and Jessie Singer qualified for ICDC! We are beyond proud of their amazing accomplishments and are so excited for them to move on to internationals.
