DECA’s Role Play Events effectively measure the student’s proficiency in the knowledge and skills identified by occupational practitioners as essential to success in a given career. Roles in these events could be content area expert, client, customer, employee, supervisor, manager or entrepreneur. The guidelines for each of the Individual Series Events have been consolidated to facilitate coordination of participant activities in each career category. This means the guidelines are exactly the same for each career category. However, each career category’s role-play will be career specific and will be different and distinct from the role-plays of the other career categories.
