Reasons to join DECA


As scheduling for the 2017-2018 school year is now available to all students, it’s time to extend the opportunity of becoming a DECA member to all current sophomores for their upcoming junior year. As I graduate and leave the halls of Olentangy Orange High, the one thing I want to leave all of you with is some recommendations for DECA. Here are a few things I personally have learned from my DECA experience:

  • Benefits of entrepreneurship
  • Basics of how to own and run a business
  • Opportunity to travel the country for all competitions
  • Get to miss school up to 2 weeks a year
  • Great college application asset, sets you apart from other business school applicants
  • Discount in the school store (& free popcorn every shift)
  • Meet local entrepreneurs
  • Opportunity to wear the ~famous~ DECA blazer

Apply to be a DECA member for next school year by grabbing an application in the attendance office OR stop into Fort Orange during any lunch period to chat with Mrs. Shanahan herself about any and all opportunities that DECA has in store for YOU! Joining DECA was one of the greatest choices of my career here at OOHS and I’d love to pass the opportunity down to all of you!
