ATLANTIC CITY, NJ – Sparta High School has 20 students headed to California after a strong showing at the Distributive Education Clubs of America or DECA State competition. The Spartan contingency had a number of finalists and first place winners in Atlantic City allowing them to advance to the DECA National competition in Anaheim, California.

Sparta sent approximately 80 students to Atlantic City earlier this month to participate in the DECA State competition.  These students earned the opportunity after a successful showing at the regional competition held in February at Ramapo University.

“DECA prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs for careers in marketing, finance, hospitality and management in high schools around the world,” Marketing teacher and DECA advisor Sandra Chiappini said.
