DECA Day of Donation

September 16th

For our first community service event, we will be hosting our first DECA day of donations to support Best Buddies of Georgia. Our members and school hopefully will donate and we will keep track of our donations on a leaderboard throughout the day. Stay tuned to find out who is on top of our Best Buddies Donations Leaderboard!

Who are we?

We are South Forsyth DECA, the second largest DECA chapter in the world! Established in 1997, we’ve grown to offer a vast variety of opportunities for our 1300+ members. Our students put their marketing skills to the test by consulting with local businesses, completing internships, engaging in community service projects, and competing against marketing students from around the world.

DECA’s competitive events program directly supports our mission. As an integral part of the classroom curriculum, DECA’s industry-validated competitive events are aligned with the National Curriculum Standards in the career clusters of marketing, business management and administration, finance, and hospitality and tourism. DECA's flagship evaluation process involves students in both a written component such as an exam or report and an interactive component with an industry professional serving as a judge. DECA’s competitive events directly contribute to every student being college and career ready when they graduate from high school. Students compete at the regional, state, and international levels.

Community Service

A major part of our chapter are our annual community service projects. Georgia DECA’s 2019-2020 Community Service Project is partnered with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). This year, South Forsyth DECA will be holding our second annual “Magical Morning”, along with many other community-service oriented events, where all of the proceeds go to JDRF.

School Events

When you think about DECA you most likely think about marketing, competition, and community service, but there is so much more to it than that. Throughout the year we host numerous events such as our annual DECA Tailgate, the DECA Prom Fashion Show, and our monthly DECA Socials. All of which are great ways for our members to get involved with our chapter.
