Juanita High School DECA is excited to be sending 12 students to DECA state competition on March 6-8. Top DECA students from around the state compete at the DECA State Career Development Conference for the right to compete at the DECA International Career Development Conference.

“We are so proud of our DECA students who are on their way to State competitions,” said Juanita High School Principal Gary Moed. “I know they will represent Juanita very well.”

On Jan. 9, 60 Rebels competed against 1,200 other students in our region to advance to the state level. Rebel Lauren Friend placed second overall in Apparel and Accessories Marketing. Conner Goodwin and Jay Krohn were eighth overall in Sports and Entertainment Marketing Team. Tori Vacknitz  finished sixth in Restaurant and Food Services Management. Robert Snyder finished in eighth place overall in Hotel and Lodging Management.

Juanita students Ashley Griffitts and Kayla DiMicco will go to the State Conference to compete and present the school’s Chapter Awards Project. Stephanie Burd, Lindsey Biel and Amber Haglund advanced directly to state with their Community Service Project. Anna Ellefsen and Rebecca Liu will be competing in the Business Principles category.

The city of Kirkland helped make the effort possible with a grant to help the Juanita DECA students attend the conference.
