A student team from UCF outshone its competitors at Collegiate DECA’s state conference, held from March 1-4.
The team won a 4-star Chapter Activities Award, the highest possible ranking, for its community service and events held throughout the year. Only two chapters in Florida earned this prestigious award.
Seven students were part of this year’s group. All of them placed in the finals for their respective events, and several placed in the top three. As a result, the entire team has won a spot to compete at the national competition in Salt Lake City, Utah this April.
Congratulations to the following students:
Advertising Campaign Event
Human Resource Management Event
International Marketing Event
Hotel and Lodging Event
Restaurant and Food Services Marketing / Management Event
Travel and Tourism Marketing / Management
