92 MIHS students advance to state DECA

The Mercer Island High School DECA team has qualified 92 students to compete at the state DECA event on Feb. 28 through March 2, 2019 at the Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue. 

The competition cycle starts for our students at the Area 3 event in January.  The MIHS DECA team traveled to the Meydenbauer Center for a full day of competition in events such as Accounting, Business Finance and Business Law and Ethics.  There were 207 competitors this year participating from MIHS, all of which represented their school with professional performances.   

DECA is an international organization that provides MIHS Business and Marketing students a chance to demonstrate their leadership abilities, business skills, and professional strategies in a competitive environment – both with extemporaneous speaking ‘pitches’ and with papers and projects.
