Behind the Theme…

EYE ON THE PRIZE. The dictionary defines vision as “the ability to think about or plan for the future with imagination or wisdom.” CDC 2020 is a place to not only dream big but also reach and exceed the aspirations you have for yourself. Oklahoma DECA has their EYE ON THE PRIZE to prepare the next generation of great leaders to succeed and set goals for the future. We want you to clearly see today and look toward tomorrow.

Motivational speaker Simon Sinek said, “Vision is a destination- a fixed point to which we focus all effort.”

Our initial goal is state, but we challenge all of you to focus on Nashville and ICDC. This can’t happen without hard work, dedication and your EYES ON THE PRIZE. Oklahoma has a vision to stand out and make a difference.

Join us for CDC 2020 – EYE ON THE PRIZE.
