According to David Cassidy, DEX adviser, “CEU made a great showing this year at the state marketing competition with firsts in two events. All of our students qualified to go to nationals in their chosen events. They made it look much easier than it really was.”
Approximately 150 competitors from Utah State University, Weber State University, the University of Utah, SLCC, Utah Valley State College, Snow College, Southern Utah University, Dixie State College and CEU competed in the two-day competition.
“Our students also competed in other events but these are the ‘money’ places as only the first six competitors in each event qualify to go to nationals in Atlanta, Ga., in mid April. Utah usually fields one the of the stronger state teams at nationals and we can expect that several of our students will do well there also,” Cassidy said.
CEU had three teams who had never competed at the state level before and deserve special recognition for their accomplishments, Cassidy said.
