Colleges are no longer accepting students JUST because of their high grades. They are also looking for diverse students who enjoy contributing and participating in activities.

What do you participate in? How has your experience been? Would you recommend it?

If so, what kind of people would benefit the most from it?

    So how (most) DECA chapters are set up there are eight officer positions-

    President, Vice President, VP of Career Development, VP of Public Relations, VP of Finance (my job!), VP of Marketing, VP of Hospitality, and VP of Leadership.

    Our President, Vice President, and usually VP of Public Relations mainly work on our chapter's community service project, which is raising awareness for local child abuse.

    VP of Career Development helps us with our competitions, so giving us test advice/study materials, and letting us go through our presentations/giving us help/pointers with all of those!

    VP of Finance usually gets to help plan fundraisers for our community service and our national competition costs.

    And obviously, by the titles, I think it is obvious what the others do!

    Wow. I never knew the School had so many positions. The VP of Career Development sounds more interesting to me.

    Do you enjoy doing this for your school?

    I really do actually!

    I think DECA has had such a positive impact on my life and being an officer brings it to a new level.

    For example, I got to speak at City Hall about our service project and about different things we do. So then we got to take a picture with the aldermen and mayor, and the mayor gave us a proclamation that November is (School Name) DECA "No Excuse for Child Abuse Awareness Month"

    This year I didn't get to do much planning for nationals (COVID made it virtual!)

    But, I do plan on running for VP!

    Wow! That's absolutely amazing! So these positions at high schools can also impact your community/city in a way... like you were able to speak at City Hall because of the project!

    And You would make for a perfect VP candidate

    Yes exactly!

    I live in a super small county and it is crazy to think that what I do at school has a county-wide impact.

    And in a way, since it is a part of our DECA competitions, an international impact almost. I would like to think that judges end up thinking of ways to help end child abuse in their communities as well!

    And I appreciate the compliment!

    Amazing! This is the type of thing that really impresses colleges, you should truly be able to pick any college you want.

    And so you can still do this via virtual school?
