DECA’s valued partner, the U.S. Army, has teamed up with the Pro Football Hall of Fame for the past six years to offer the Award for Excellence to high school students around the nation who excel in academics, community service, and athletics.

The program is open to sophomores, juniors and seniors and is a truly unique opportunity. In the spring, the 25 finalists will be recognized by a Pro Football Hall of Famer and U.S. Army Soldiers right in your own school in front of their peers.

Then in August, the 25 finalists, along with their families, will head to Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Weekend where they will enjoy a weekend of fun Enshrinement activities and one will be recognized as the winner.
