DECA's 2021 Advocacy Campaign Winners Announced

March 8, 2021

February was Career and Technical Education (CTE) Month®, and many chapters worked hard to advocate in their schools, communities and to their policymakers on behalf of DECA by completing the 2021 DECA Advocacy Campaign.

This year brought another wave of exceptional submissions as students conducted virtual events, wrote powerful letters to their policymakers at various levels, and organized their schools in support of DECA activities.

Whether you attended school board meetings, helped with marketing local businesses, posted flyers or contacted your local representatives, your DECA voices were heard loud and clear this year!

We thank you for sharing your advocacy stories and for celebrating CTE Month with DECA this past February.

Congratulations to this year’s Advocacy Campaign recipients!
