Region Competition will be held in-person this year!
What is Region Competition?
Deca region is the first level of competition in DECA. It focuses on roleplays: a situation in which you can demonstrate marketing skills within a time limit. Region will allow the top places in each event to advance to the state level. This year, region will be held in person sometime between December 2-10.
There are 3 different categories of Roleplays:
Individual Roleplay Events: These are available for every DECA member and competition goes all the way to the International level. These include a mandatory test that will be taken prior to region competition.
Principles/First Year Roleplay Events: These are available to first year DECA members and competition also goes to the International level. These include a mandatory test that will be taken prior to region competition.
Georgia Only Roleplay Events: These are available to all DECA members and competition goes to the State level.

Overwhelmed? Here's a Few Tips to Pick the Perfect Role Play!
What are your career interests? One of the best advantages of DECA’s competitive events is that they encourage you to explore your career interests. If you have a career interest that you are passionate about, find a competitive event that aligns with that passion, because you’ll likely be more motivated and interested in learning as much as you can about that career pathway.
Do you have job experience? If you’ve had a part-time job, an internship or any work experience, think about how that may help you in DECA’s competitive events. For example, if you have worked in the retail career field, then a retail event may be a perfect fit for you, because you can use the knowledge and skills you learned on the job when solving your challenge in your role-play or case study.
How can you match your personal strengths to the format of the competitive event?
Are you a strong test taker? If so, you may want to consider a competitive event that has an exam component.
Are you a strong presenter? How much time do you like to prepare? If you like to think quickly, then a role-play may be optimal for you. However, if you like time to map out your presentation, DECA’s written events would be your path.
Do you work well with others? This is a big question when deciding if you are looking to tackle a team decision making event.
