1st place – Morgan Thompson – Computer Applications
1st place – Orlando Burgos and Ami Devlin – Business Presentation
2nd place – Morgan Thompson, Chris Davila, and Katie Harris – Ethics

These students also had top scores statewide. The Desktop Publishing team, Araceli Burgos and Jessica Weed, ranked 3 out of 126 teams statewide. Morgan Thompson ranked 21 out of 127 competitors in Computer Applications statewide.

Our Business Presentation Team “wowed” the judges and received scores of 100 from both judges in their event! The first and second place winners will advance to the State Leadership Conference in Atlanta in March.
