7 November 2012-8 November 2012
The DECA Idea Challenge 2012 is a fast-paced competition that challenges college student teams to find new use for a common, everyday item while creating the most value possible. Examples of items used in similar activities are rubber bands, water bottles and gum wrappers. The common, everyday item for 2012? The item will remain a mystery until November 7, when DECA will announce the item and officially launch the competition. Teams then have eight days to develop and execute their ideas and submit a three-minute video showcasing their work to YouTube. A panel of expert judges will select national winners shortly after Global Entrepreneurship Week For detailed information and to register for the Idea Challenge, visit www.GEWUSA.org/challenge.
