DECA Inc. is pleased to announce this year’s DECA Idea Challenge global winners!
A premier event of Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW), the DECA Idea Challenge dared elementary through university students to generate a new use for paper clips in merely a week! In addition to reinventing the item, teams were to create a video pitch of their new product.
With a significant amount of creativity, teamwork and determination, these teams were able to rise to the top.
Congratulations to the following DECA Idea Challenge global winning teams:
