Competition is one of our favorite things about DECA! It's a fun way to network with members from all different chapters, put your skills to the test, and have a bunch of fun along the way.
If you have never competed, don't worry! We've got your back and all the prep you could ever need. Check out our past competitions, event descriptions, and competition prep below.
Regionals is a great way to get your feet wet! This is our first competition for the year and takes place around fall semester. There are a bunch of different case study events that you can participate in.
For more information about this year's Regional competition, check below.
State is our second competition of the year and it is typically held in the beginning of spring semester. Unlike Regionals, State is a fun event that lasts all weekend! At State you can participate in both Prepared and Case Study events, we recommend trying out both! This is your chance to qualify for the International Career Development Conference!
More information about this year's State can be found below.
ICDC - Nationals
This is what you've been waiting for all year! When you qualify at State, you get the opportunity to compete at the National level and represent our chapter in front of other chapters all around the country and even Canada! ICDC has been held all around the country like Atlanta, Anaheim, Orlando, and Washington D.C.
More information about the International Career Development Conference can be found below.
