Port Clinton DECA fundraising underway

Port Clinton High School marketing students and DECA members are seeking sponsors for the 2014-15 school year. The reason for the early start is four students are attending the International Career Development Conference in Atlanta May 2-7 and many members will be attending the DECA Summer Leadership Retreat (DECA Camp) July 11-14. Both events need support to help defray students’ overall costs.

Normally Port Clinton marketing students are kept busy securing sponsorships from local businesses in order to attend a Regional Conference either in Minneapolis, MN, or Washington in early December. This year’s DECA chapter has set a goal of $7,000 to help defray the cost of the conference including travel, registration and lodging fees. Also, DECA membership has increased from 24 to over 40 members so a few new DECA Blazers worn at competitions will need to be purchased.

Students have been issued an “Apprentice” style challenge putting Juniors against the Seniors to see which group can raise the most money. There are four sponsorship levels: Platinum at $150 or more, Chief at $100, Redskin at $65, and Indian at $35. Sponsorship forms are available at the PCHS Main Office, the Board of Education Office and online at www.pccsd.net under District News. Forms can also be obtained and questions answered by calling Bill Hollister, DECA Advisor, at 419-260-9068.
