On May 10, 2017 Washington DECA is joining more than 1,000 nonprofits in raising money to help make Greater Seattle a stronger, more vibrant community for all.
“DECA is an amazing experience for students. They get to experience competing that cannot be replicated in the classroom or other environments. My students leave school prepared to take on competitive programs and jobs, and excel in those fields. The confidence from presenting to a DECA judge is probably the single biggest factor in this development.” – Andrew Shanafelt, Advisor
“High school was rough for me because I was struggling with homelessness. I moved a lot throughout Snohomish county and one of the things that kept me rooted to success was that each school I went to had a DECA program. Thank you WADECA for all you did for me in the youth and thank you for helping me become the man I am today.” – T.S., Alumnus
