DECA, An Association of Marketing Students, is a student organization that focuses on business and marketing competencies.  The competition evaluates students in business and marketing situations with the goal of having DECA members career and college ready.  Students compete in written events, which relate to economics, finance, promotion, risk management, customer service, selling, product development, marketing concepts, and business math.  Students also test their oral presentation skills via different situations in the business world through role-play events.
