JANUARY NEWSLETTER

Note: advisors, even though the newsletters can not be visibly found on the website, you are more than welcomed to copy the link to the newsletter and share it out with your chapter officers.

Louisiana DECA Updates:

Registration for the Louisiana State Career Development Conference has opened up!

La. DECA will give one $500 scholarship to a DECA member and one $500 scholarship to a state officer who is a senior.  The application for Round 1 is done online.  By completing the online application, the student is also applying for other DECA scholarships.

 

Once we narrow the list down to 10 or less for La. DECA, we will notify you and the students to send in the additional material for Round 2.  Students in Round 2 will be interview via Zoom during the week of March 1.  We will give further details on this.

 

Remind your students they can apply for other DECA Scholarships including the Southern Region scholarships.
