Moriah Mecham faced a perplexing problem earlier this month. She was a marketing manager for a potato chip company that faced lagging sales with the younger market, and her task was to find a way to make the snacks appealing to the demographic. In theory, anyway. Mecham, 14, is a Moffat County High School freshman, and the above scenario was a hypothetical situation posed in one of two role-playing assignments during a Distributive Education Clubs of America district competition Dec. 4 and 5 in Aspen. Her role-play performances helped her qualify for a state event Feb. 25 through 28 in Colorado Springs.
