Hey Florida DECA! Today we’re talking about the promotional campaign. The DECA Inc. campaigns are meant to make your chapter thrive. This campaign can be broken down into 3 parts:
1. 3 School Outreach Activities
This can be anything from lunchtime activities, to a poster, or a school announcement.
2. 3 Success Stories of Alumni
Some examples are making a poster with all the stories and hanging them around your DECA classrooms. Another is making a video of them answering some questions or being interviewed by someone. The last and most effective in my opinion is having 3 alumni guests speak at your school and share their success stories.
3. 3 Community Outreach Activities
Common activities are fundraising events at local food places, having a guest speaker from your community, volunteering at a local event, or a social media campaign.
When submitting this picture are optional but I suggest you add pictures, if you have, them and show off your chapter! For the activities they ask for a short description of each activity and for the success stories they ask for their story. It’s good to keep that in mind when competing these projects so that your chapter can prepare the submission ahead of time. Also remember that the promotional campaign is from the beginning of the school year through DECA month and is due on December 1st. Lastly, if you want more slots at ICDC chapters receive thrive academy slots for achieving at least 2 of each thrive campaign.
