S GA students headed to international marketing competition

CORDELE, GA (WALB) -

A group of high school students in Cordele are looking for a little help to get to an international marketing competition this May.

Four Crisp County High School students will compete at the International Career and Development Conference in Atlanta next month. Seniors involved in the school's DECA club won state competitions in downtown Atlanta in late February, following a regional victory in late January.

Students said the marking association helps those following marketing, finance or entrepreneurial pathways gain experience for college and earn scholarships to help pay for school.

"You have students…a lot from Canada, you have some from Germany, so they're from all over the world," said Shelby Hughes, Crisp County High School senior. "And for Georgia DECA to host something like that and for you to be familiar with different types of people, it means a lot for me to be a leader." 

Hughes said the competition has been held in Salt Lake City and Orlando in previous years, and it excited to have it a little closer to home this time around.

She said the group is looking for some sponsors to help them get to Atlanta. Crisp County High School is helping the students coordinate fundraisers.  They need $2,000 to get to the competition. 

For more information about the event, or to learn how you can help, contact Jennifer Culpepper, CCHS DECA Advisor, at (229)276-3430 ext. 2212, or at jeculpepper@crispschools.org
