DECA - Distributive Clubs of America

Club Description

  • DECA stands for Distributive Clubs of America but is mainly related to all types of marketing-baisc marketing, sports and entertainment marketing, travel and tourism and entrepreneurship.  It gives the students a chance to use the marketing skills they have learned in class or just the marketing skills they are good at naturally.  You take written test and then have a situational interview with a judge.  There are over 20 areas available to compete in.  We also try to do a community service project every year.

    Last year we had 2 students win at district and went on to state and 1 student won at the state level and qualified for nationals.
    District Competition is January 30, 2015 at the Knoxville Expo Center.
