Monona Grove DECA Going to State

The Monona Grove DECA Club placed high in a number of "series" at the district competition at the Oregon High School yesterday and is headed to the state competition at Lake Geneva in March 2010. Congratulations!

Profiles of the DECA officers. Yes, the VP of Public Relations is my son Tyler Wood. Other officers are: Ashleigh Hacker (President), Jenna Northouse (Vice-President), Kelsey Carter (VP of Social Intelligence), Olivia Rush (VP of Social Consciousness), and Mariah Wagner (VP of Vocational Understanding)

The district competition involved two written tests (marketing specific and marketing math/economics) and two role-playing business situations with a businessperson. 


They brought home the hardware.

They also get to wear nice hats.







And they toured Miller Park.

And they worked hard. (You'll have to take my word on that; I don't have a picture.)

What is DECA?
