Team Decision Making Events

The Team Decision Making events are designed for a team of 2 participants, who work together to solve a problem or develop a plan to present to senior management (the judge). The judge (or pair of judges) evaluates the students presentation, and their response to questions.

Individual Series Events

Judges take part in a role-playing situation with the high school student to evaluate how well the student demonstrates different marketing competencies. In these role playing events, students are required to accomplish a task or solve a problem by translating what they have learned in the classroom into effective, efficient, and spontaneous action.

Written Events

DECA has two types of written events: research and chapter projects. A judge working with a research project may either evaluate the written portion or the presentation portion regarding a marketing research and/or business plan that the student team has developed. Judges working with chapter projects will evaluate a chapter’s program of activities that was used to accomplish a specific goal, and the student’s presentation of that project.
