2018-2019 DECA Projects Highlights
Our group is taking on the Learn and Earn Project for this years’ DECA class. We have to create our own business within our school, Station Camp High School. We have to create this business to make money; but more importantly, we are learning how to become real entrepreneurs. We have created Nothin’ But Net. This business is all about event planning for companies. Businesses come to us to ask us to plan events for their company. We have two events planned for this fall. The first one we will be doing is with Resourceful Solutions. They are a fundraiser company that sells colorful trash bags and Ziploc bags. They reached out to us to see if we could sell their product in our community. The second event that we have planned is a PEER Place CDC Basketball game verses the CDC students at Station Camp High School. We will be hosting the basketball game here at Station Camp during our 4th block. We hope by having Nothin’ But Net, it will teach us all the necessary information needed to run a business.
Hospitality and Tourism Operations Research
Hi, our names are Maggie Gillespie and Savannah Payne, and we are competing in the Hospitality and Tourism Operations Research Event. For our project, we decided to partner Kávé Express, a local coffee shop, and the Rae of Hope Foundation, an organization that raises money for families with children who are battling brain cancer. We are doing this with the soul purpose of increasing the knowledge of Rae of Hope as well as to help Kávé Express become more involved with their community.
School Base Enterprise Retail
SBER is a School Based Enterprise Retail Project. The Stampede Stop Shop is located inside of Station Camp High School and it sells t-shirts, sweatshirts, jerseys, car stickers, coffee, and much more. The Shop sells these items to highschoolers, teachers, staff, and neighboring schools. This year they plan to reach out to more students and parents in the community to increase their sales. They are designing and creating new merchandise for the Stop Shop in hopes to increase profit. Their ultimate goal is to help fund students in their DECA chapters trip to ICDC in Orlando this Spring.
International Business Plan
In the international business plan event, we are to come up with a business plan and analyze all the different factors that go into operating a business. In addition, we will also have to operate the business in a foreign country. We have developed Paradise Chateau; a manageable airbnb with many excursions and activities to gain the attention to our potential guests. We chose to locate Paradise Chateau in the Marshall Islands; we wanted to have a unique location filled with many interesting cultural aspects and one many have yet to hear of. By implementing Paradise Chateau into the economy of the Marshall Islands, we hope to raise the tourism rates and create steady revenue streams for our employees.
