ND DECA Sponsors & Business Partners

We love our sponsors and partners.

North Dakota DECA appreciates the businesses and individuals who continue to support our organization. Sponsors provide dollars and in-kind donations in support of DECA leadership opportunities and conferences.

Supported By

Business partners are important to the success of North Dakota DECA. Business partners continue to support DECA and provide opportunities in leadership development, entrepreneurship, competition, and other areas that benefit youth. DECA has developed continued partnerships with many businesses in the state.

State Business Partnerships have been developed in a variety of ways.

Sponsors of conference activities, scholarships, leadership training, equipment and supplies or in-kind donations continue to build business partnerships in North Dakota.

DECA members continue to gain support from business and industry in our state at both the high school and college level.

Applebee’s and North Dakota DECA

2019 marked the 15th year of this prosperous partnership. Applebee’s opens its stores across multiple North Dakota locations to share the restaurant industry with DECA Members. DECA Members staff all roles needed in the front of the house to serve thousands of pre-sold breakfast tickets. This work experience provides funds for the Applebee’s Scholarship which is awarded to one deserving North Dakota DECA Member each March.

As of 2019, Applebee’s has helped North Dakota DECA raise $50,000. 

Sanford Health and North Dakota DECA

At our Fall Leadership Conference in October 2019, we partnered with Sanford Health to raise funds for Breast Cancer Awareness and the Sanford Foundation through pink lemonade sales. Sanford Health provided pink lemonade materials and North Dakota DECA Members staffed the station in an effort to raise awareness and money for the cause. 

Thank you for the awesome learning opportunity, Sanford Health!

We thank these sponsors for their 2018-2019 support!
