CHARITY EVENT

One of the cornerstones of DECA U’s mission statement is that of Civic
Consciousness, and for its members to enhance the communities in which
they live and work. A new initiative this year, the Charity Case Competition
is a chance for our delegates to work in mixed teams on a case that
revolves around a local charity and some of the challenges that it faces
each year.

Each team will be comprised of students from a variety of schools,
programs, and cohorts. Following an address by a representative from our
featured charity, each team will have thirty minutes to prepare a solution
with no aides or materials other than the case provided to them, to
address the challenges in the case.

Each team will then give a 10-minute presentation, to be followed by a
question and answer period from the judging panel, which will include a
representative from the charity itself. At the Awards Brunch, DECA Queen’s
will make a donation to the charity on the winners’ behalf.
