Albright College will host and sponsor a Pennsylvania DECA competition for high school students on its Reading, Pa., campus, Tues. Dec. 7.

Aligned with National Curriculum Standards, Pennsylvania DECA competitions challenge students in the career-minded topics of marketing, business management and administration, finance, hospitality and tourism. In addition to a written component, student-competitors will interact with industry professionals on campus, serving as judges.

Winners of the Albright competition will be eligible to compete at the State Career Development Conference in late January.
