DECA Direct - October 2018
DECA is excited to announce another year of the DECA Idea Challenge, a fast-paced experiential learning exercise that dares students of all ages to find an innovative use for a commonplace item in mere days! Once revealed, students must generate a new use for the item. Competing teams finish the challenge by generating a brief video pitch of their new product.
