California DECA Chapter Awards Program

California DECA Chapter Awards Program


Please find attached the guidelines and penalty point sheet for the California DECA Chapter Awards Program. The Chapter Awards Program is an event that is unique to California DECA. A full description is included in the attached guidelines.

We hope to encourage greater participation in DECA’s Chapter Awards Program this year. The Chapter Awards Program is a proven recognition program that has been in existence for a number of years. It provides guidelines and focuses on the events and activities that are of greatest use/benefit to the local DECA chapter. The activities outlined in the Chapter Awards Program present an excellent representation of the activities that active DECA chapters should participate in and those which are strongly encouraged by DECA to assist your chapter in developing a strong program.

Don’t forget that if your chapter certifies at the Gold level you will automatically qualify three students of your choice to attend the International Career Development Conference as a participant in one of these three Emerging Leader Series academies: Ignite, Elevate, or Aspire (Aspire is just for Seniors).

If you have any questions; please let us know.
