On December 14, 2017, SCCC DECA received a generous donation from Kuecker Logistics in Belton, MO. The donation of $1500 will help support and sustain our chapter funding this year. There are several members who are preparing for competition. Our competitions are during the spring semester starting with district competition, which is held at Independence Center on February 7, 2018. State competition will be March 11-13, 2018 and has been moved to Westin Crown Center in Kansas City, MO, and was previously held at the Lake of the Ozarks. This year our International competition will be held in Atlanta, Georgia on April 20-25.
Each year SCCC DECA works with local initiatives and charities to develop marketing, publicity and advertising plans or general community awareness programs. This year some of the areas the community can expect to see promoted include Project DECA, Proud to be an Owl, Hoot Resource Center, Baby Grace, and The Buddy Pack Program, just to name a few. DECA members enjoy giving back to our community which has supported us whole heartedly every step of the way.
SCCC DECA provides a sponsorship level, which includes advertising opportunities through DECA for each business that donates to the chapter. Initially created two years ago by Quiz Falls and Jack Hemeyer as a “Learn and Earn” project to help fund DECA competitions, Dough4DECA has been continued this year by chapter members as a source of funding for ICDC.
Businesses interested in becoming a sponsor this year can contact Kerry Henley, DECA Advisor, at 660-886-6958.
