What Is DECA?

Megan Blount

Most students would agree that DECA cookies are undoubtedly delicious and sell out almost everyday. However, many people don’t know what this club is truly all about. DECA stands for Distributive Education Clubs of America and is an international club that allows students business opportunities as well as the chance to build up their skills in topics such as marketing and finance. The club builds leaders and allows students to get a first look at the way a business should be run. This is a club perfect for anyone looking to enter into a business field as it provides experience and gives the opportunity to put oneself in a realistic scenario for the field. The club also competes in competitions with the first being the Regional competition. Our own Centereach DECA team will be competing soon in early January and those who do well will move onto the next competition upstate giving them a chance to gain a spot at the competition in Washington DC. Overall DECA is a great way to have fun while learning vital information for future opportunities.
