2. SCDC PRESENTATION VISUAL AIDS

We’ve received questions about what is allowable for competitors to bring in to competition. On page 39 of the DECA Guide, this is addressed:

The Written Entry Presentation Guidelines will no longer include the list of allowable items. Participants in written events may bring any visual aids that adhere to the following guidelines:

Only visual aids that can be easily hand carried to the presentation by the actual participant(s) will be permitted.

The participants themselves must set up the visuals.

Wheeled carts, moving straps or similar items may not be used to bring visuals into the area.

Set up time is included in the total presentation time.

Participants must furnish their own materials and equipment.

No electrical power or internet connection will be supplied.

Alternate power sources such as small generators are not allowed.

Sound may be used, as long as the volume is kept at a conversational level.
