Congratulations to UNLV DECA on an OUTSTANDING performance at the 2019 Collegiate ICDC!

Nevada DECA's sister/alumni program, UNLV (University of Las Vegas), were "in it to win it" at this year's ICDC. Though they might have a small team of eleven members, the Rebels brought back amazing results, and did a remarkable job representing Nevada on the international stage. They won a number of team awards, including: 

Presidential Chapter Leadership Passport Award

 Community Service Award, Advocacy Campaign Award (1 of 3 chapters in the nation to receive this award)

 4 Blue Individual Leadership Passport Awards

 2 Gold Individual Leadership Passport Awards

 2 Academic Honor Awards 

In addition to UNLV DECA’s achievements as a chapter, a number of members “brought it home” in competition! Let’s give a grand [digital] round of applause to the following members and their well-deserved success:

Cornelius L. Kilgore once said, “Judge me not be physical size, but judge me by the size of my character.” UNLV truly lived to this phrase, and outdid themselves this year, and we are proud to stand alongside them! UNLV DECA, congratulations on a fantastic ICDC, and thank you for representing Nevada well on the collegiate level.
