School-based Enterprises Video Challenge

Chapters operating school-based enterprises were invited to participate in DECA’s first-ever School-based Enterprise Video Challenge, a contest designed to be fun and engaging and, at the same time, promote the value of SBEs.

“The video was a fun learning experience for the students,” said Donna Celio, DECA advisor at Stone Bridge High School in Virginia, the chapter with the second place entry. “We had the entire marketing class participate.”

Students were charged with creating a short video addressing the following questions:

  • Where do you sell?
  • What do you sell?
  • To whom do you sell?

The 51 entries we received were evaluated on how well they addressed the above questions and the creativity of their video.

“The biggest challenge was trying to stay within the thirty-second time limit,” said Celio. “We had to be creative in order to meet the criteria.”

Brandon Hamilton, a DECA student at Michigan’s Kearsley High School, the first-place chapter, enjoyed collaborating with his fellow students on the project.

“We learned that working as a team can be a challenge, but when you all have a passion for the same goal, you can overcome the challenges,” Hamilton said.

Congratulations to our top three videos—those from Kearsley High School, Stone Bridge High School, and Blacksburg High School (Virginia). These schools received awards from our premier sponsor, Otis Spunkmeyer, and DECA Images.
