DECA: A True Compass Champion
Jul 14, 2010
DECA, a worldwide organization that prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs, won the Global Entrepreneurship Week/USA Compass Award at the Global Entrepreneurship Week/USA Partners Forum held June 8-9, 2010, at the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation in Kansas City, Missouri.
The Compass Award is given to the organization that best integrates the compass into their activities, outreach and local campaign.
During GEW 2009, DECA incorporated the compass in many of its DECA-sponsored activities. Most notably, the compass appeared 20 times in the November/December 2009 issue of DECA Dimensions (see image on right) that celebrated Global Entrepreneurship Week 2009. The compass was prominently displayed during two Speednetwork the Globe sessions at DECA’s New York Experience Conference during Global Entrepreneurship Week. Banners, copies of DECA Dimensions and lapel pins captured the entrepreneurial spirit.
The compass connects millions of people around the world to a movement of entrepreneurial champions and advocates. The compass represents the intersections of ideas, cultures, information, people and places. The array of vibrant colors that radiate out through the circular band gives a sense of diversity, variety and optimism. It represents a navigator providing direction and guidance.
