Clarke Competes at DECA Regionals
Following months of hard work and preparation, 70 members of the 140 W.T. Clarke High School DECA team competed against thousands of high school students in the Nassau County Regional DECA Competition held at Freeport High School on Jan. 7.
    
According to its website, DECA is a nonprofit student organization that prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs in marketing, finance, hospitality and management in high schools and colleges around the world.
    
These talented Clarke DECA members participated in competitive events that are aligned with the National Curriculum Standards in marketing, business management and administration, finance, and hospitality and tourism. Students were evaluated on written components, such as an exam, or on a manual as well as share an interactive component before an industry professional who served as a judge.
    
The district commends this remarkable team and wishes them much success as they compete in the State-level competition in Rochester, New York, from March 8-10.
