Forty-two North Country Career Center DECA (Distributive Education Clubs of America) students traveled to the Sheraton Hotel and Conference Center in Burlington, Vt. March 9 to participate in a two-day Career Development Conference. This event, sponsored by Vermont DECA, allows students to compete in their selected field for awards and college scholarships.

NCCC students once again excelled in their role plays and testing, bringing home four first-place awards, seven second-place awards, seven third-place awards and many honorable mentions.

This Career Development Conference prepares those students who are interested in competing at the International Career Development Conference which will be held in Salt Lake City, Utah. This conference also prepares students for the business world by teaching them how to dress professionally, and how to network with others in a business type atmosphere.
