CompETE: A Recap

Over the past four weeks, the members and officers of Arizona DECA have been taking their competitive prowess to the #NEXTLEVEL by attending our virtual competitive training event, CompETE. CompETE was designed to give members the opportunity to learn more about DECA Competitive Event strategies, the different types of competition, and how to elevate competitive skills in general.

In week one we discussed how to select an event and covered the basics of DECA competition. We went in-depth about the differences between role plays, written events, and virtual challenges. Week 2 followed shortly where we reviewed the Event Cluster Exams in general, how to excel with amazing test-taking strategies, and collaborated on the best ways to find success! In weeks 3 and 4 we dove even deeper into 21st Century Skills for written events and roles plays and discussed how you can use those skills to your advantage in competitive events.

This conference was filled with creative ideas, collaboration, and commitment. Everyone gave their best advice and ideas and it was amazing to see everyone continuing to collaborate.

Team 60 hopes this event gets everyone in the competitive mood as we head into competition season. It’s important to remember to always push yourself to your furthest limits and strive toward your greatest goals. Thank you for an amazing CompETE!

With Warm Regards in DECA,

Emily Anasagasti
