The Urbana and Ohio Hi-Point – Urbana DECA chapters competed in the first-ever virtual Ohio Career Development Conference from March 5-14.

Twenty-seven students from the Urbana Chapter and 4 students from the OHP-Urbana Chapter tested their skills and knowledge among Ohio’s best in an attempt to qualify for DECA’s International Career Development Conference. From Urbana, 15 students placed in the top 12 in the state while OHP-Urbana had 2 place in the top 12. Urbana saw its first qualifiers since 2017 and set a chapter record with 7 students qualifying for the ICDC competition.
