2019-2020 District Event Instructional Areas Announced

DECA posts online the primary instructional area(s) assessed in each of the district level scenarios to help advisors and members prepare for district competitions more effectively. District competitions often begin early in the school year before advisors have had opportunities to cover all of the instructional areas in the curriculum.

By receiving the instructional areas in advance, members can focus on the instructional areas on which they’ll be assessed at their first level of competition each school year.

Instructional areas for state/provincial and the DECA International Career Development Conference competition will not be announced prior to those competitions.

Below are the 2019-2020 District Scenario Primary Instructional Areas.
