Congratulations to the DECA at the Bell Challenge 2023-2024 Winners

Jan 16, 2024

BusinessU is thrilled to announce the top three teams of the DECA at the Bell Challenge!

In partnership with DECA Inc., BusinessU is proud to provide members with a corporate challenge that merges the dynamic worlds of business, content creation and DECA. Thank you to all the teams that participated in this year’s challenge.

For this challenge, teams of up to three wrote, filmed and produced their very own episode of DECA at the Bell. Creativity was encouraged, and DECA members impressed the BusinessU judges with their ability to engage the audience while connecting something in the world of business to the world of DECA.

Congratulations to the top three teams, which will receive onstage recognition at the International Career Development Conference (ICDC) this April, in Anaheim, California.

First Place

Aaditya Jain and Nina Pan | Lynbrook High School, CA

Second Place

Nikhil Kotta and Aditya Singh | Lebanon Trail High School, TX

Third Place

Sophia Timmermans and Fatimah Naraghi | Ames High School, IA

The winning episode will be published as the DECA at the Bell episode the week before ICDC. Thank you to BusinessU for supporting this challenge.

*Eligibility to attend DECA ICDC is determined by the chartered association advisor based on their policies. Finalists should consult with their chartered association advisor for eligibility guidelines and gain approval from their chapter advisor to attend the conference.
