Members of Lynn Camp’s DECA chapter were all winners at their regional competition held Jan. 25 at the University of Kentucky student center.
All 29 students that competed placed in their respective categories and qualified for state competition to be held at the Galt House in Louisville, March 11-13.
Most notably from the competition, two students, Fred Slusher and Amanda Bowman, received exceptionally high scores getting 93 out of 100 on their role-play team event. One of the judges said “these students performed exceptionally well for their first time in a DECA competition and are not just state worthy they are ready for nationals in Salt Lake City.”
At the opening ceremony, DECA treated participants to a very surprising opening. Three state officers opened up dancing to the popular song “Party Rock Anthem.” Later they also had a special “minute to win it” competition between all DECA chapters in which the participants from each chapter did various activities such as a scavenger hunt, pencil toss and an Oreo race.
During the opening ceremony, the Lynn Camp DECA chapter received a second place award for largest regional chapter membership and a third place largest regional chapter increase.
