Do you mean business? Come join the DECA business competition!
The DECA business club is gearing up for another fantastic season of fun and competition! Last year we took over fifty students to the Provincial competition in Toronto in February, and half a dozen students from St. Benedict’s went to the International competition in the United States.
If you have a keen sense for business, marketing, advertising, or promotions of any sort of product, this club is the one for you! There are group categories for competition, as well as individual ones.
There is something for everyone, so consider joining us!
Please complete this Google Form indicating your preference for category and activity. Please note that you must choose either an oral or a written, you cannot choose both. Also, please note that you may not get your first choice! If you are considering working with a partner or group, please make sure you indicate the name(s) of the other individual(s) where this information is asked for on the form.
We will start meeting on a regular basis on Tuesday, September 18.
Meetings are held in 214 and 216 Tuesdays and Thursdays at lunch. Bring your lunch with you, and be prepared to do some competition preparation!

The DECA Business Club is about to get ready for the fierce business competition in Toronto in February, but to get there we need you to start coming to meetings next week! There are plenty of business categories to choose from, with written and oral events, and individual and partner projects. Whatever you are interested in, DECA has a category for you!
