All competitors took a one-hundred question multiple choice test on marketing concepts and had to perform an impromptu role play situation that dealt with either human relations problem solving, selling, promotion, economic concepts, management decision making, pricing, product development, planning marketing strategies, customer service problem solving or a combination of the above.

The top qualifiers advance to the DECA State Career Development Conference in Columbus during March, with a chance to qualify for national competition.
