The activity-packed day started with an ice breaker activity where students were engaged in a modified rock, paper, scissors tournament and progressed to interactive activities designed to show students how lead successful teams, effective communications and building trust. After a working lunch, involving using Lego to design a new super hero while making marketing mix decisions, students began the journey to prepare for DECA competition by gaining an understanding what competition is and how they can be successful. The day concluded with a team building activity where students needed to work in teams and effectively communicate in order to navigate through a virtual maze.

"It was extremely helpful to learn more about interacting people while on teams. I really enjoyed the day" said junior Maddie Bleick.

Senior DECA president Amelia Volkert summarized her conference experience by saying, "This conference allowed me to engage with new members. I feel like I have a new leadership direction."
