Honors and Scholarships

The Emerging Leader Honor Award is presented both at the state and national level.

North Dakota DECA offers scholarships to be presented at the State DECA Career Development Conference in March.


DECA's scholarship program provides over $300,000 in scholarships to high school and college DECA members at the International Career Development Conference (ICDC) each year. Many corporate partners of DECA provide scholarships through the DECA scholarship program. DECA Inc. administers the program based on guidelines set by the donor. DECA scholarships are strictly merit based.


All senior students are encouraged to complete both the scholarship applications and the Marketing Education Honor Award.
