As an integral part of the classroom curriculum, DECA’s industry-validated competitive events are aligned with the National Curriculum Standards in the career clusters of marketing, business management and administration, finance, and hospitality and tourism. DECA’s flagship evaluation process involves students in both a written component such as an exam or report and an interactive component with an industry professional serving as a judge.
Below are several videos recorded at a past International Career Development Conference. Each video provides an example of how to present during a competition. Keep in mind that there is no “right way” or “wrong way” to present – these are simply samples to help you get started. Make sure that your personality shows through in your own way!
Corresponding role-play scenarios and event guidelines are also included below.
