Boca Raton, FL-- West Boca Medical Center congratulates the DECA team from Coral Glades High School in Coral Springs for winning 4th in the state for its project on the hospital’s program "Healthy at Tenet."

The winning paper was submitted for the Internet Marketing Plan category at the State Career Development Conference (CDC) in Orlando. Juniors Danielle Baumgarten, Emily Haney and Brett Rabinovich made up the school’s team.

The assignment was to create a business plan on the Healthy at Tenet website, which would expand the program globally, not just to employees. The team proposed improving the website by adding new fitness program options, which centered on overall wellness. They named the new branch "Healthy at Tenet- Giving Back to the Community." The final plan consisted of a 30-page paper and a 15-minute oral presentation with visual aids, which each team had to present in front of a panel of two judges.

"We chose Healthy at Tenet because we felt that staying healthy has become a global issue," said DECA team member Emily Haney. "We felt that the judges and everyone else could relate and take interest in our proposal."

After placing 4th in the State, the team will now attend the International Career Development Conference (ICDC) in Louisville, Kentucky on April 23rd to compete against teams from across the globe.

DECA is an international association of high school and college students studying marketing, management and entrepreneurship in business, finance, hospitality and marketing sales and service.
