DECA… ICDC... Loch Ness monster…
What do these three all have in common? MYTHS!
DECA is connected to many different myths and misconceptions that have been analyzed for years, but it is now time to go full on "myth buster" on DECA ICDC
I will break it down into four of my favorite myths
Ontario always wins
False. Competition is defined as rivalry between two or more persons or groups for an object desired in common, usually resulting in a victor and a loser but not necessarily involving the destruction of the latter. If you are willing to put in the time and effort you can definitely be on that stage looking out to thousands of members thinking “we made it.”
I need the newest DECA things
While you will look stylish it is recommended but not necessary to wear the new DECA patch on the DECA blazer, the old one is still acceptable. Also, it is recommended, but not mandatory, to use the new DECA folios for written events. For further information on these look to the link on the bottom of this post.
I am from a small chapter, I can’t win because no one else has.
NO. NO. NO.
We can look to our very own Vice President Morgan. She comes from a “small chapter” and with only a handful of members at CDC she ran a great campaign! I strongly believe that it does not matter what school you are from or the history you are trying to follow, but it is you that will win. If you work hard enough you will win. MAKE YOUR OWN LEGACY!
I don’t want to try so hard just to lose
It is not about winning (which would be fun) or losing, but how you play the game. If you try your hardest, the most important person in the world will be happy and proud, yourself. So if you don’t want to do it for anyone else, do it for yourself and GET THE WIN AT ICDC! #wemadeit
Good luck and may the odds be ever in your favor.
