Several members of the Rotary Club of Nashoba Valley participated in a mock judging session at Nashoba Regional High School. DECA prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs in marketing, finance, hospitality and management in high schools and colleges around the globe. More than 100 students participated in the mock session in preparation for the actual competition in mid-January. Community leaders, including club members, evaluated the presentations and provided positive reinforcement and constructive feedback on the presenters' business ideas, presentation skills, and professional appearance. The students did a fabulous job in their preparation amd presentations. They did so well that 112 of the 210 members finished in the top 6 of their categories at the district competition in January! These students advanced to the state competition in March, and several teams qualified for participating in the international competition in April. We recognize and congratulate all of the participants in this year's DECA competition!
