In the dynamic world of DECA, creativity and quick thinking are indispensable skills. "Do We Have a DECA Deal?" provides an exciting and engaging platform for DECA members to hone these skills in a tournament-style game. This workshop is not just a game; it's a catalyst for innovation, pushing participants to think on their feet and unleash their creativity in unprecedented ways.

The premise of the workshop is simple yet powerful. Participants form groups dependent upon size and embark on a journey of imagination. Their task? To envision three unsellable items. As the clock starts ticking, groups dive into concocting items that seem impossible to sell. An umbrella with holes, a bicycle with no seat or a broken lightbulb are just a few examples of the quirky items that may arise. The goal is to transform these seemingly undesirable products into something marketable. It's a test of creativity, teamwork and the ability to turn a seemingly negative situation into a positive one.

The game is structured in a tournament style, adding an element of competition to the mix. Each round challenges participants to elevate their creativity to new heights, pushing boundaries and shattering preconceived notions. The game can be tailored for an intimate setting. Members can form small groups or participate individually, brainstorming and pitching three unsellable items within a designated time frame. The focus is on quick, dynamic pitches, fostering creativity and adaptability. Judging or voting by peers can determine winners, with the option for advancing rounds if time permits. Post-game, reflection and discussion provide an opportunity for learning and team bonding.

So, are you ready to play "Do We Have a DECA Deal?" and discover the untapped potential within your team? The workshop awaits, promising a blend of excitement, collaboration and innovation like never before. Have Fun - Virginia DECA Team 79
