2024 CDC Events:

Oklahoma students are allowed to compete in two (2) events at CDC with only one of the events being a team event. Principles events do NOT count towards this event total meaning first year DECA students would have the opportunity to compete in three (3) events.

Keep in mind that if a student qualifies for ICDC in multiple events that they must select ONE event to compete in at ICDC.

Potential combinations for student event entries:

  • An individual event and an individual event
  • An individual event and a team event
  • An individual event and an individual event and a principles event (first year DECA members only)
  • An individual event and a team event and a principles event (first year DECA members only)

*Events can be role plays type events or written events – that designation does not matter towards the two (2) event entry rule. We are focusing on individual events/team events due to scheduling logistics.
