Ninety students from Smithtown High School East and West DECA competed in the New York DECA State competition this year in Rochester.

Smithtown East and West received 75 medals and trophies, and 11 students qualified in their competition to attend the International Career Conference in Anaheim, California where they will compete against all the top winners from across the globe.

There were more than 3,000 students from across the state competing. The competitions included business topics such as marketing, finance, public relations, accounting and entrepreneurship. Students competed in either tests and role plays or written manuals and presentations.

The 11 Smithtown students who won trophies as well as two students who received the School Based Enterprise Certification and one Thrive Leadership Academy student are advancing to the International Competition in Anaheim, California at the end of April.
