Five students will head to the Grand Geneva Resort in Lake Geneva in March after a successful DECA District Marketing Competition this weekend in Suamico. Senior Aubrey Peot took third in the Business Finance Series and seniors Brandon Stillman and Connor Duffy took third in the Sports and Entertainment Marketing Series. There were five other students earning medals from the district competition including sophomores Jose Fernandez, Carter Krause, and Anthony Casanas and seniors Kayla Scharrig and Jack Weitman. The district competition includes two role-play events and an exam based on their category. Stillman credits adviser Mary Witteborg and their local business mentors for helping them prepare for the competition.
It will be the fourth year in a row Stillman competes at the state competition, which is held every year in March at the Grand Geneva Resort in Lake Geneva. Those that qualify for the national competition will head to Nashville later in the spring.
