DECA/Knowledge Matters Digital Presentation Skills Challenge
Each year students in the DECA chapters across the nation have the opportunity to take part in the DECA/Knowledge Matters Digital Presentation Skills Challenge. Students create a 1-2 minute digital presentation utilizing a Knowledge Matters Virtual Business simulation. The main topic is solely up the student. They can present on strategies they use in the simulation, discuss real-world business stories and illustrate the stories with sim exercises, or even present on their own lives and how they relate to the simulations.

Eight finalists move forward and get to share a longer presentation to a panel of judges and then the top three winners are recognized and awarded case prizes at DECA's biggest event, the International Career Development Conference (ICDC). The eight 2022 finalists are featured below.
