After winning at the district and state levels, six Buchholz students - Kaydee Currie, Brandon Good, Scott Miles, Arden Mitchell, Kyle Sander and Troy Wallace - will show off their entrepreneurial knowledge and skills in business plans and advertising at the DECA International Career Development Conference (ICDC) with 15,000 other competitors.
It will be held in Nashville, Tenn., May 1-5. DECA is an acronym for Distributive Education Clubs of America.
Additionally, three younger DECA members - Addison Roepe, John Wilson and Danielle Good - were chosen to participate in the Leadership Development Academy as part of the ICDC experience.
DECA is an international association of marketing students focused on developing business expertise and a strong work ethic. These students will put their marketing knowledge to the test while taking written exams and simulating real-life business situations before a judge.
The student competitors need community and corporate sponsorship to help defray their transportation, lodging and entry fee costs of $7,000.
Contact program director Dianne Lauramoore at the Buchholz High School Academy of Entrepreneurship, 955-6702, ext. 305 if you wish to offer support.
