It's back...

As a DECA chapter, you know how fun and empowering these campaigns can be. Apply your leadership and entrepreneurial skills by participating in the 2024 MDA Shamrock Pinup Cause Raiser and impact families around the country.

How to Participate:

Students simply sign up to participate by filling out a quick form, and MDA sends out all the necessary supplies and resources. All donations received by March 31, 2024, will count towards your chapter’s totals for recognition at ICDC in April. Any donations that will be mailed should include the DECA Allocation Form along with their check.

The top three fundraising chapters will be invited on stage during the Grand Opening Session at ICDC in Anaheim. The top 10 chapters will be recognized and invited to a sponsored luncheon.
