Competitive Event Resources
Hey Nevada DECA! It’s Vihaan Jain, your 2020-2021 VP of Career Development. I am looking forward to helping you all prepare for DECA’s competitive events this year and to help you succeed at SCDC! While things are unpredictable at the moment due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I want you to know that I’ll be here to help you answer questions related to competition and to help you prepare.
I would like to introduce you all to a useful tool to help you prepare for competition: career cluster resource guides. DECA has five different career clusters. Follow the links below to learn more and find resource to help you determine the best career cluster for you. This can also be a guide to improve your performance on the cluster tests, to gain facts to present in your role plays, or to even consider when writing your written event reports! At the end of each guide, a Link Tree is attached that includes a list of sources used to create the guides and to help you conduct further research into your clusters. There are nearly 40 additional resources to check out!

If you are a chapter officer, feel free to share these guides with the rest of your chapter. You may reference these guides during competition preparation meetings to help teach your members.
In addition to these career cluster resource guides, we have a LIVE virtual competition training on October 7, from 3 PM - 6 PM. Gain insider knowledge from trainers on how to successfully take your SCDC event to the next level. Sign up by clicking here!
I hope you find these career cluster resource guides helpful! If you have any questions regarding these or about competition in general, reach out to me through Instagram (@deca_vihaan) or email me ([email protected]). Let’s take this year to the Next Level!
