Irving ISD will be represented by 39 students at the 2024 DECA State Competition in Houston next month. DECA, short for Distributive Education Clubs of America, prepares high school students for careers in marketing, finance, hospitality and management. Students who qualify for the state competition participate in an evaluation process based on their career cluster. The process involves a written assessment and an interactive portion judged by industry professionals. Students who win at the state level advance to nationals.
Congratulations to the following Irving ISD students who have qualified to compete at state in February:
