Pennsylvania DECA Celebrates a Successful ICDC

Anaheim, CA - Pennsylvania DECA congratulates its over 450 members who attended the 2017 DECA International Career Development Conference in Anaheim, CA this past April. During the school year, approximately 120,000 of DECA’s 225,000 student members take part in the organization’s competitive events program, allowing them to compete for local and regional titles. The competitions are designed to simulate real-life business scenarios and test students’ academic understanding and skills development. The top state and provincial winners put their talents to the test during the program’s final round of competition in Anaheim. The DECA International Career Development Conference was the pinnacle of competition where nearly 16,000 students vied for international honors. Over $500,000 in scholarships and awards were presented to students and teachers for their achievements.
