DECA Month is the ultimate celebration of all things DECA. From recalling your favorite DECA memories and completing chapter campaigns, to attending events and sharing your DECA story with everyone in your community and school, November is all about the many reasons you love being a DECA member.
Read on for all the information you need to celebrate DECA Month!
Ways to Celebrate
Join the Social Media Challenge
The #DECAMonth Social Media Challenge is the perfect way to share DECA with your friends and followers. Each day in November, there will be a different DECA-related theme and we challenge you to find the perfect photo or video for each day. Maximize the challenge by holding a contest within your chapter. Each day, pick a winner for the best post related to that day's theme. Give the winner recognition by posting their image on your social media channel and give them a shout-out! Or, give your members an incentive to see who can do all 30 days of the challenge. Whoever goes the entire month without missing a post can earn a prize on the last day of #DECAMonth!
Participate in DECA's Chapter Campaigns
Round up your chapter members to participate in chapter campaigns! Choose from the Membership Campaign, Promotional Campaign, Community Service Campaign or Ethical Leadership Campaign —or do all four—to get engaged in your community and boost your membership. Campaigns are a great way to get recognized by DECA Inc. for the awesome things your chapter does and even earn Thrive Academy spots at ICDC! Use the Chapter Campaign Guidebook to get started.
