What is a Role Play?

A ‘Role Play’ is a DECA event in which individual(s) are given a real-life business scenario with objectives and have to create a presentation concerning the scenario. Individuals are given a ‘Case Study Situation’ along with ‘Performance Indicators’ to help guide their presentation and so the judges know what to look and grade for.

(If you are a freshman or first-year DECA student (not Fashion Merchandising or IB Business) you are most likely going to do role plays)

Nothing prepares you for district and state better than PRACTICING your role plays with other Carmel DECA students who have been successful in the past.  Check out the SRT ROLE PLAY SCHEDULE and come as often as you can.

In addition, you need to STUDY OLD CLUSTER EXAMS for your event and practice them to get ready for your exam, which counts as 1/3 of your score. You can obtain these materials by coming in during SRT and Role Play Heads can assist you.
