DECA earns 41 awards at Boston competition

The MERHS DECA team returned from three days of competition in Boston. This year was the most challenging year to qualify for Internationals. In the past three years Massachusetts DECA enrollment has seen significant growth. The state level competition saw 2200 students at the Boston Marriott testing and roleplaying to make the international competition. The state competition has grown from 1700 students just four years ago. Only the top four students in each category qualified.
 
MERHS DECA has twelve International Qualifiers, fifteen students as Top Ten, and received 14 individual medals in the Friday night awards. We scored seven first place, eight second place, four third place and four fourth place honors. Combed with top ten, MERHS students amassed 41 awards. Many more MERHS students will receive written exam recognitions. I will forward their names when those results are posted.
