DECA started off the new semester with a bang, raising $2,200 for the Make-a-Wish Foundation at the DECA Marketplace on January 27! The Marketplace showcased DECA students’ business and marketing skills, with students running successful booths selling everything from Broncos cheerleaders’ autographs to grilled cheese sandwiches! Many students visited the Marketplace during lunch to check out all the great booths and to support the Make-a-Wish Foundation!
In February, DECA aimed to recruit more students to “Deck out with DECA!” At the beginning of pre-registration period, DECA set up a table in Activities during lunch to encourage students to pledge to sign up for a business or marketing class for the 2012-2013 school year. Classes that offer membership in DECA are Marketing 1 and 2, Sports and Entertainment Marketing, and IB Business and Management SL and HL. DECA recruitment was a success, with many new faces promising to join DECA!
