n April 30, 2015 Massey DECA returned from Orlando, Florida in a team of over 700 other Ontario students who competed and networked with future leaders in the International DECA competition known as ICDC. We competed against over 18,000 students from all over the world in the various categories.
Mohamad Mehdi, Lucy Ji and Albert Zhang presented a pitch for a new ride to the President of Park Sales of Universal Studios in the leadership portion. During the Leadership training one of our students was on a team that came up with a unique idea for a themed amusement park, and proposing a partnership between Universal Studios and Nintendo. The team made it to the top three with their presentation to the VP Marketing of Universal. With the resulting announcement by Universal and intend signing with Universal to create a Nintendo themed amusement park they had a hand in developing a billion dollar idea. What an opportunity!
Diana Chang and Christopher Gregorian each won top 10 medals in the Marketing and Accounting Series events. Chris earned a medal with his strong knowledge on the exam portion of the marketing event. Diana too earned medals but in both the exam and in the role play portion qualifying her for the Final round. Diana continued Ontario’s dominance with a third place finish and also takes away a scholarship from the CPA organization. Next year she can jockey for first place while grade 12 and a chance at increasing her scholarship. Congratulations to the whole team. DECA members stay tuned for a team meeting in the next few weeks.
DECA, Demonstrate Excellence Celebrate Achievement!
