Apply Now for the 2019 DECA Hotel Challenge Curriculum Grants

The Virtual Business Challenge (VBC) – DECA Hotel Challenge aims to build awareness of career path opportunities in the hospitality industry. To accomplish this goal, The J. Willard and Alice S. Marriott Foundation supports the VBC – DECA Hotel Challenge, provides curriculum to thirty-three (33) DECA chapters each year and funds student scholarships to participate at DECA’s International Career Development Conference (ICDC).

Through the VBC – DECA Hotel Challenge, more than $20,000 in curriculum grants will be awarded during 2019 to DECA chapters. This will ensure that teachers have dynamic tools/resources and all students have the opportunity to experience the career pathways in the hospitality industry.

The curriculum engages students by presenting them with challenges around ten (10) hospitality lessons and several projects, such as key vocabulary words, and quizzes to assess reading comprehension.

DECA chapters can apply now for the 2019 Curriculum Grants. Notification to recipients of the Virtual Business–DECA Hotel Challenge software will take place in May 2019.

The deadline to apply is Friday, March 29, 2019. 

Please contact Diane Pruner with any questions regarding the curriculum grant.
