The Chaparral DECA Chapter was named the District 11 Conference Champions last Tuesday. 72 students from District 11 schools including Ponderosa, Legend, and Douglas County qualified to continue on to state. The state conference will be held in Colorado Springs at the end of February. An additional 16 students received top test scores in their respective categories, and will also move on to state. A few of the Chaparral students who received top test scores include Riley Hyvonen, Dalton Mendoza, Zachary Munn and Cambria Peterson. All of the 72 students who qualified for state had to have both their test score, and their two role play scores add together and finish in the top 20 of their category.
