Babylon High School’s DECA club took home top honors at this year’s Suffolk DECA Career Competition.

More than 100 Babylon students took part in the event at Suffolk County Community College and earned more than 40 top-place trophies. Among the events they competed in were Visual Advertising, Finance, Accounting, Restaurant Management, Travel and Tourism Marketing, and Public Speaking. Approximately 40 students will now travel to compete in the State Career Competition in Rochester, New York in March.

DECA (Distributive Education Clubs of America) is a national co-curricular service organization with more than 200,000 student members nationwide. This year, the Babylon chapter supported the Make-A-Wish foundation as well as the Babylon Breast Cancer Coalition through various fundraisers and community events.
