What is DECA?

DECA is the Distributive Education Clubs of America- it focuses on business and marketing skills for future careers where you get to compete and meet tons of new people. (Not to mention it looks GREAT on resumes!)
You must be enrolled in a Marketing class(Marketing, Adv. Marketing, or Retail Operations)
Show off your marketing skills and compete for your place at Area, State, and Internationals. There are 47 different events to compete in, such as Automotive Services, Fashion Promotion plan, Retail Merchandising, and Sports & Entertainment, Community Service project, and Entrepreneurship!

Start studying for DECA roleplays and tests. You will be taking your qualifying exam in December. The exam should take about one hour. 

A written event is a project that will allow you to show your best work. It is an opportunity for you to look to your future and and create something that you use and be proud of. You can have up to 3 people in your project team. Read all of the guidelines before you start your project. There are several practice tests and roleplays available to you.

There are 47 events to choose from. Make sure you pick 2 to ensure your spot at State and International Competition.
