International DECA Results

Valor Christian’s DECA team returned from the international competition in Orlando, FL on Wednesday, May 1. There were 22,000 students from 10 countries represented. Each event had approximately 100 competitors or teams. The competition was quite stiff, and the top 2 from each section advanced to the final round.

Three Valor students, Ryan Pierce, Shay Wedeking and Nick Solimene, made it to the finals competition round, where they finished in the top 15 in the world.  They wrote an innovation plan for a food delivery service throughout DIA when passengers are strapped for time or movement.

Congratulations to all DECA students who advanced to the international competition:
