Participate in the Ethical Leadership Chapter Challenge during #DECAICDC

April 15, 2021

Submit by April 22

DECA chapters are invited to participate in the Ethical Leadership Challenge. DECA is hosting this challenge in partnership with MBA Research and with support from the Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative High School Program with these awards:

  • 1st place chapter ($1,000)
  • 2nd place chapter ($500)
  • 3rd place chapter ($250)

The challenge is simple: Develop a 60-second (or less) public service announcement (PSA) video describing the nature of ethics. The PSA should be designed to educate your local community and those afar through social media about the importance of ethics. You can be as creative as you like in creating and producing your PSA, and take it to social media to get the most votes! Only one entry per chapter, but engage your chapter in the promotion of the PSA.

Chapter submissions are due by Thursday, April 22 at 3:00 p.m. EDT.

The online promotion and voting period will be open from Thursday, April 22 at 4:00 p.m. EDT to Friday, April 30 at 4:00 p.m. EDT.
