GREETINGS FROM THE STATE DIRECTOR JOHN STILES State Director

Welcome to the 2020 State Career Development Conference, and Fairmont Hot Springs Resort. Over 800 DECA members, advisors and corporate partners have gathered at Fairmont Hot Springs Resort for the pinnacle event of the DECA year, and we could not be more excited to spend the next three days creating new connections, engaging in challenging new adventures, and celebrating incredible achievements with each of you. DECA is an integral component of classroom instruction that helps members apply their learning and connect to business. This year, DECA encouraged you to examine your journey, and to take advantage of the limitless opportunities available to you through this organization - and you did just that! You participated in DECA’s Chapter Campaigns, created innovative new products in the DECA Idea Challenge, attended Career Pathway Conferences, earned Gold-Level Certification for your School-Based Enterprises, and conquered the competition to make it all the way to the stage at the State Career Development Conference. While the State Career Development Conference is the most anticipated event of the year, the next three days you’ll spend at Fairmont will certainly go by faster than you ever expected. Be sure to take advantage of every opportunity DECA offers you this week, such as meeting incredible corporate partners, colleges and universities, and sharing your experiences on social media using #MTDECA. Also, don’t forget to experience all of the new activities and events this year. From fireworks at DECA After Dark, to a live DJ and jam-packed DECA Hub, make sure to take in all that this conference has to offer. Remember, just because you’ve made it to #MTSCDC, doesn’t mean you’ve reached the end of your journey. Every new connection you make and challenge you conquer here at Fairmont will bring you one step closer to achieving your dreams. Congratulations on making it to the State Career Development Conference and get ready for an amazing experience......HERE WE GO!


WELCOME

In addition to naming our highest performers in Montana DECA’s Competitive Events Program, Montana DECA presents the annual Spirit Award. The Grand Awards Session is the pinnacle of recognition for an academic year of preparing to be college and career ready. The Grand Awards Stage recognizes ICDC Qualifiers with a Trophy.

RECOGNITION PROCESS

All event finalists will report to the holding area when instructed to do so.

DECA Scholarships are merit and academic based. Students are required to maintain a 3.5 GPA, and are expected to be active and involved in their local and broader communities.

Medallions are not presented at the Grand Awards Session. Only top performers in each event are recognized with a trophy. Trophy recognition signifies qualification for the International Career Development Conference in Nashville, TN.

In addition, applicants are required to submit a 500 word essay describing their career objectives and ambitions, outline how DECA has assisted them in progressing toward the objectives outlined, and share how the University will help them accomplish their career goals.
