What are the most and least popular DECA events?

I’d like to know more about the competitions held at DECA events and their purpose. What are the ways in which DECA takes part in assisting learners? I am wondering if there are any easy events in the DECA competitions that I could participate in and stand a chance of winning. I am also curious about the DECA conference. Can someone who has previously attended the conference shed light on it? Also, are there any other exciting upcoming events at DECA? Please tell me when and where these events will be held and who can attend them.

I have seen that the DECA event, hones the skills of students professionally in various fields. These fields may include media, education, psychology, and linguistics. DECA puts more emphasis on career growth and skills a leader must possess. Students participating in the event need to take their public speech and presentation skills to another level. DECA is characterized by two unparalleled learners’ divisions. Each of the division runs a program which addresses different learning styles, concerns and skills of students. High school is one division that comprises of more than 3,000 schools. College is the other division which is made up of over 150 colleges and universities.

If you participate in its event, you may experience a positive change in your life. You will develop confidence when addressing the crowd. By seeing how other people carry themselves in public will give you self-confidence. Some of the least popular competitive events at DECA are in the fields of finance and writing, mostly because these are time-consuming and tedious. Some of the most popular events are entrepreneurship events like startup business plan and online events like the stock market game. The team events are also quite popular. You can participate in the least popular games to increase your chance of winning a competition!

The DECA conferences for career development will be held on 21st to 24th August in 2018 at Atlanta in Georgia. In the previous conference, more than eighteen thousand high school students and advisors made their way to take part in sharing skills and knowledge that can build ones’ careers. The conference challenges you to think critically, communicate effectively, enhance your creativity and collaborate. There are many other conferences like the sports, marketing, innovations and entrepreneurship conferences.

Several other events that are upcoming include the social media challenge and marketing results challenge. Competitive events improve students’ skills and engage them through hands-on learning. It is true to say that DECA has had positive impacts on students. Its introduction has changed the way students look at entrepreneurship. The programs and activities have expanded in the recent past due to the use of advanced technology and improved competition formats. These events are open to all students.

I agree with all that has been said on the DECA events. However, I’d like to add that these events improve the capabilities of students in working as a team. They make them think more creatively and keep them on their toes throughout the event. Students love to come up with business ideas and make use of the knowledge they have gained in college by applying them in real life scenarios. One thing I disagree with is that finance-related events are not popular. In my experience, I’ve seen that students particularly like the financial consulting event because they can actually assume the role of a financial consultant, which is very challenging and interesting at the same time. Many students aspire to become financial advisors or consultants, and that is one of the reasons for the popularity of this event. I am not sure about the writing events though. Also, if you want to increase your chances of winning one of the competitions, you can participate in team events.
