Several members of the Mercer Island High School DECA team will head to Salt Lake City in late April for the International Career Development Conference.

Eleven members of the MIHS team qualified for the event after the State DECA event, in which only the top six in each category earn the right to advance.

Placements at the state competition included: Oliva Rosen and Emily Morse first place for marketing communications, Tanner Ranz and Ethan Vu third place for sports and entertainment promotion plan, Devlin Conway and Brandt Waesche fifth place for sports and entertainment promotion plan, Peter Clark and Chris Roth fifth place for hospitality management, Alberto Gonzales sixth place for human resource management, Max Goetschel sixth place for restaurant management and Jack Pearl, seventh place for accounting.

The ICDC features 14,000 students from the U.S., Germany, Mexico, Canada, Puerto Rico and Guam.

The event is scheduled to take place at the end of April.
