     What is DECA? And, why do we compete/participate in this club?

    Since 1946, DECA has been assisting in the preparation of students for college, careers, and the competitive business world. Whether the student is interested in becoming a better consumer, or learning about marketing, management, or entrepreneurship, DECA can help them get where they want to go. DECA’s co-curricular programs bring the real world of business into the classroom with an approach that emphasizes leadership and making the most of a student’s talents and abilities.

    Today, over 200,000 marketing students and 4,500 marketing teachers enjoy the benefits of membership in DECA.  See the official DECA website, www.deca.org for additional information.  Also, see New Jersey DECA's website, www.njdeca.org

    What do the DECA Competitions consist of, and are there meetings, or a big time commitment?

    At each competitive level (Regional, State, National), students will compete on written, and role-play levels.  The written test will be a timed, multiple-choice test of 100 questions.  The role-play tests involve studying a short case-study provided by DECA relating to your competitive category, and meeting individually with a judge to answer questions regarding the case-study.  Meetings will be once per month during lunch in room A116.  All LVR DECA members will also be assigned to a DECA Mentoring Officer who will be available to members any day during lunch.
