Voting is now open for the DECA Ethical Leadership Challenge! 

Hosted in partnership with MBA Research and with support from the Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative High School Program, the challenge tasked teams to develop a 60-second (or less) public service announcement (PSA) that educates the local community and those afar through social media about the importance of accountability. Now, you and your social media followers become the judge as you "vote up" your favorite entries.


Share and vote for your favorite submission from November 22 to December 15, 2022 at 4:00 p.m. ET.

The top 10 PSAs will then be evaluated against the criteria to determine the top five winners. The top five teams will be announced in January 2023, and will earn cash prizes of up to $2,500. The top three teams will be recognized on stage during DECA’s International Career Development Conference in Orlando, FL.*

*Eligibility to attend DECA’s ICDC is determined by the chartered association advisor based on their rules and regulations. Finalists should consult with their chartered association advisor for eligibility guidelines and gain approval from their chapter advisor to attend the conference.
