DECA Inc., Amazon and the International Trademark Association (INTA) are excited to announce the 2023 Unreal Campaign Challenge winners.

For this challenge, students were given the opportunity to speak directly to their peers about the dangers of counterfeit products. Participants were invited to produce a 60-second public service announcement (PSA) video to demonstrate their knowledge on the dangers of counterfeits and to dissuade their peers from purchasing fake products

Each of the top three winning teams will be recognized on stage during the International Career Development Conference in Orlando, Florida this April. The teams will also be awarded ICDC travel stipends. Congratulations to the following DECA members:
