National DECA has a great new resource for advisors and students completing Chapter Campaigns....the Chapter Campaign Guidebook!
"This is a new resource tailored for both advisors and students to make your campaigns a success. Throughout the  Guidebook , you will find two parts for each of the  five campaigns : an advisor guide and a student worksheet. Advisors can connect their instruction to the campaign through the classroom connections, and use the list of ideas to give their chapter a jump start. Students now have a worksheet to help brainstorm, hit checkpoints, and understand how to reach the THRIVE level to be eligible to attend the Thrive Academy at DECA’s International Career Development Conference."
