We sent six judges to DECA this year to judge the Community Service Project prize.  The BBRC sponsors this event with $2,000 which goes towards defraying the travel expenses of the winners.  Six teams out of about twenty four will go on from the State competition to National

  • Steve Szirmai
  • John Schwager
  • Adam Mihlstin
  • Steve Peters
  • Paul Osborn
  • Ray Lepp (coerced by John to come along as an honary BBRC member!)

The Winning Project

6th Annual Spike for the Cure by Clarkston High School - first place State Winners.



Thank You Letters

We received 6 thank you letters from various schools that participated in the Community Service Project competition.

Local High School Projects

We asked DECA for these with the idea of picking a 'local' winner to invite to RYLA.  In the end we chose Interlake for their Guatemalan Gift project because it seemed to show the most amount of initiative and was consistent with the BBRC objectives of Education.  However our invite went out too late, and so they never took advantage of our offer.
