Collegiate DECA recognizes its members and chapters through a variety of recognition programs for distinguished achievement in academics, leadership and community service.
CHAPTER LEADERSHIP AWARD
The Chapter Leadership Award is designed to recognize Collegiate DECA student members for their leadership on their campus and with their chapter. In addition to students who are members of a campus-based chapter, individual members are also eligible for this award based on efforts to establish a campus-based chapter.
ASSOCIATION LEADERSHIP AWARD
The Association Leadership Award recognizes Collegiate DECA student members for their leadership at the association level. Only the official Association advisor or designee may submit students for this award. A maximum of two students may be submitted per association. Students are not required to be officers.
COMMUNITY SERVICE AWARD
The Community Service Award is designed to recognize Collegiate DECA chapters for civic activities performed in their community. The activity may include any community service or civic activity the chapter completes during the current school year. In addition to campus-based chapters, individual members are also eligible for this award.
