MN DECA STATE ONLY COMPETITIVE EVENTS (EVENTS THAT ARE NOT OFFERED AT ICDC)
Last spring the DECA Board finalized the events that MN DECA will be offering this year, the 2017-2018 school year. I am attaching the MN State Only Guide. Please take a close look at the summary of events that MN DECA offers – the board decides each spring what events for the coming year. The Economics In Marketing State Only Event was dropped and will not be offered.
Attached is a summary of the events that MN DECA will offer at the State Career Development Conference in March 2018. The national events that are in shaded grey have had changes to the guidelines. Events in red are not offered by MN DECA. MN DECA will be offering the Entrepreneurship Team Decision Making Event this year, which is new.
INDIVIDUAL EVENTS ARE ATTACHED
For your convenience the individual events are attached as stand alone documents. Everything on this email will be posted to our state website for future reference.
DISTRICT ALLOCATIONS FOR ADVANCEMENT TO STATE
The scale for participation in the 2018 State Career Development Conference is based upon the number of participants in your district competition. This allocation if for any and all events.
NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS
ALLOCATION PER ALL EVENTS
|Less than 200||Top 4 per event|
|201-300||Top 6 per event|
|301-400||Top 8 per event|
|401 +||Top 10 per event|
|501+||Top 12 per event|
The only change made to Chapter Gold is that the page number has been increased to 90. The Guidelines for this event within the MN Only Guide have been updated to reflect the changes. The stop 12 chapters (those that are interviewed at state) will once again receive 2 spots for the Leadership Academies at ICDC.
SBE PROJECTS WILL CONTINUE TO HAVE INTERVIEW AT STATE 2017
There will be an interview only at SCDC based upon National gold certification designations. Top 8 chapters will be recognized at the state conference based upon the interviews. There will not be guidelines for this event as documentation requirements will follow those set forth by National Center.
EMERGING LEADERS SERIES (LEADERSHIP ACADEMIES)
There is always question as to who is eligible to attend the various academies at ICDC. The only academy that you and/or your students can directly enroll in is the Thrive Academy which is based on your accomplishment in the National Membership Campaign.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR EMERGING LEADERS SLOTS DURING ICDC?
The MN DECA board has reviewed how the academy slots will be allocated and determined the following:
- 1st -3rd place winners of Skills Evens (State Only) &
- Top 12 Chapter Awards Projects (2 students per chapter) will receive spots in both academies based upon availability.
Marketing Plan winners DO NOT receive allocations beginning in 2018 for ICDC.
