events available

If you are a returning member, you may see that some events that you participated in last year aren't available at this specific conference. Due to the pandemic, the conference will now operate in a virtual environment and can only offer the events listed below. As a paid DECA member, you can participate in two events: one live event and one pre-recorded event.  In previous years, members were asked to pick one case study and one prepared project, however, members can technically compete in two case studies or two prepared projects. We encourage all members to take advantage of this opportunity and compete in both events!
