We had the first middle school students to ever compete in the state DECA competition, and we entered the biggest events possible: 30-page research papers with 15-minute presentations.
There were 2,450 Georgia high school Marketing students at the Omni Hotel competing in 60 different events from Thursday through Sat., and there is no middle school-only DECA competition. So, we just jump in with the big boys. Hello big time!
