Power Trip 2022 in Washington D.C. was an amazing experience. Clubs from Oakland Mills HS, Reservoir HS, Montgomery Blair HS, and Richard Montgomery HS were able to attend this once in a lifetime experience in our Nations Capital. They got to experience many different breakout sessions and participate in a Role Play.

Reservoir HS Senior, Ogo Taiwo won a medal for the Role Play, scoring a 100%. Congratulations to her and her achievement. The event included hundreds of DECA members competing in the role play activity. Next year, Power Trip takes us to Austin Texas November 17-19, 2023. All four regions will be represented next year.

Washington Commanders Business Day 2022 was held on a rainy October 13th, 2022 at FedEx Field in Landover MD. Over 1000 people from Maryland and Virginia DECA attended this one day activity that gave members the opportunity to explore the facility and hear from a few Washington Commanders Executives. 

Maryland DECA will be returning to the Commanders day with two options for attendance for the panel. October 10th, and October 17th, 2023 with the game on December 3rd, 2023 against the Miami Dolphins.

This was a great opportunity to learn about Sports and Entertainment Marketing and also tour a Professional Football facility. Members got a behind the scenes look at the locker rooms, training areas and explored the football field! The rain could not dampen the spirits of all who attended and we look forward to attending next year!
