DECA Month at Mayville State Collegiate DECA
November was DECA month and Mayville State Collegiate DECA celebrated with a month full of activities.
From social media, to DECA and local events and activities, to special meetings, our #DECAMonth was full of awesome opportunities to bond as a chapter and spread the word about DECA.
The most interactive part of DECA Month for us was on our Mayville State Collegiate DECA Facebook page, where each day we had a theme for what to post and discuss.
Our daily themes where:
- Monday – Trivia Day
DECA members, as well as some community members, got the chance to win some cool prizes for answering questions correctly.
- Tuesday DECA T-Shirt Day
We posted photos of our members and Mayville State faculty and staff wearing their DECA shirts to school.
- Wednesday – Who’s Who Day
We posted photos of our DECA members and provided little introductions about each person.
- Thursday – Random Fact Day
We posted different facts about DECA to help those unfamiliar with our organization learn more about who we are, what we do and the benefits of joining.
- Friday – Advisor Day
Our advisors answered any questions about DECA that people posted on our page or asked us in person.
We also had members participate in some of the DECA sponsored activities for the month. We had three teams participate in the DECA Idea Challenge 2015. Our teams had a lot of fun making new products out of cardboard boxes and then shooting the videos for them. We had a total of seven members that participated in the Collegiate DECA Online Hotel Challenge as well, and two of those members finish in the top 50!
We also participated in a campus-wide event that challenged all the clubs and organizations at Mayville State to collect nonperishable food items for the chance to win a pizza party. We decided to take that challenge and our chapter collected a big pile of food. An official winner has yet to be announced but we have heard rumors that our Collegiate DECA chapter will take home the prize!
Mayville State is now looking forward to the next semester and we hope to have a large group attending the state competition. Have an EPIC rest of the year!
