DECA Financial Literacy Project Success!

April 19, 2024

It was an exciting this week at Fairfax High School as 3 DECA members, Sami Moudarres, Austin Mitchell, and Marco Vicencio, presented their Financial Literacy Project to the school's administrative leadership team and MainStreet Bank.

These students created a relationship in the community with Eagle View Elementary and developed a Market Day for students in grades 4-6 to prepare a business plan that focused on financial understanding in a hands-on environment.

MainStreet Bank recognized the students’ financial literacy contribution in the community with a $7,500 check.

This was such an awesome experience to see the students exhibit authentic learning and be recognized by a local bank for their DECA Financial Literacy Project as they head to the DECA International Career Development Conference.

So many smiles! Congrats, Lions!!!!
