With the first round of DECA competitions around the corner, DECA President Cameron Sharman finds himself studying in his spare time, more than fellow neighbors.
The first part of testing will be online in the RHS library Jan. 19 at 8:15 a.m.. The second part is Jan. 22 at Frisco Lonestar High School. In order to advance to state, competitors must make a 50 or higher on the two part test.
“To get ready for the competition, I really have to study hard for the 100 question test and do some role play to get into the competition mode,” Sharman said.
Competitors are encouraged to choose a field in which they have either been employed in or have a high interest in. Sharman has competed in three DECA competitions under the food service marketing field, advancing to state in each year.
“I chose food service and marketing because I have worked in a grocery store for two years and my event deals with everything I’ve done on the grocery business,” Sharman said.
Sharman’s ultimate goal is to advance to the 2011 international meet which will be in Orlando, Florida July 12-15.
“This year I’m dedicated to studying harder for state, so it won’t keep me from the international meet like it has the past three years,” Sharman said. “Going to Orlando for internationals would show me that all my hard work has finally paid off.”
