Upper School students on Crescent’s Business Team shone brighter than ever at the DECA Provincial Competition held in Toronto from February 7 to 9, 2019.
Competing against over 7,500 students from across Ontario, the 44 Crescent team members demonstrated their knowledge of authentic business cases and the ability to clearly communicate their thoughts in high-pressure situations. Despite fierce competition, 13 Crescent students received awards, surpassing last year’s results.
"The Crescent DECA executives would like to thank the entire team – students and advisors – for such a fun and successful DECA season, one of the best in Crescent history,” says Head Boy Kyle Chang, who is the team’s CEO. “Due to all your hard work, Crescent's DECA team has never shone brighter."
