Competitive Events

A student may enter one individual and one team event. In the event the student advances to ICDC in more than one event, he or she will ONLY be allowed to enter one event at ICDC. All ICDC and DECA Inc. policies regarding competitive events will apply at the state level, with the exception of the number of events a student may enter.

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. DECA’s competitive events directly contribute to all students being college and career ready when they graduate from high school.

Competitive Events by Career Cluster:

  • Business Management & Administration
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Marketing
  • Finance
  • Hospitality
  • Personal Financial Literacy
