Hello and thank you for visiting the NVOT DECA fundraiser page!
To start, what is DECA? DECA is a career education club concentrated on preparing students for careers in business, marketing, finance and management, outside of the classroom. Students can select instructional areas in which they are interested in (apparel, automotive, restaurant, sports and entertainment, just to name a few) and they compete against other students in that category. A student’s score is based on a general marketing content exam, as well as role playing activities, in which students are presented with different business scenarios and judged based on how effectively they respond to them. To gain as much knowledge as they can and get ready for competitions, students participate in test prep sessions and in practice role playing activities with volunteers from the business community.
There are three different levels of competition: district, state, and national. Only the top performing competitors move on from one level to the next. Our DECA chapter at NVOT always strives to be the best in the various events that our members participate in. This past year, we brought 48 kids to the district conference, 28 kids to the state conference and 8 to the national competition! In the short 5 year period that NVOT DECA has been in operation we have more than doubled in membership as well as the number of students qualifying for the state and national competitions.
Your donation will help NVOT DECA members prepare and qualify for, as well as attend the state conference in Atlantic City, NJ and the national conference in Orlando, FL.
