Fill in the Blank

Did we pick the brains of our peers?

We did.

Did we ask them about WRLC?

We did.

Did we use social media to do so?

You bet we did!


   On Saturday, November 5th, we the Interns asked everyone we knew on our networks about topics concerning DECA or WRLC. We posted fill-in-the-blank questions on our Social Media sites for our peers to answer. Our mentor Jonathan Block assisted us by sharing an article regarding ways to spark engagement on a Facebook page, fill-in-the-blank questions were one of the ways. (Here’s the link


  Brittany Lucero (a talented intern from AZ DECA) posted: “Let’s see what amazing things DECA has done for it’s members. Fill in the blank. DECA has given me __________.”

   I replied with a simple one word answer that sums up what DECA has given me. DECA has given me everything. What has DECA given you?


   I on the other hand received answers that ranged from the topics of school pride, professional development, fun in the sun, and just downright silly responses.


   The question was: “I have a question for you. If I was at the San Diego DECA conference, I would ________”

“Represent my school with pride. Swag.” -Zac Dejovine
