Before the conference, Clarkston DECA members worked with the 4th-grade students and helped them design their businesses to open hypothetically. The 4th-grade students worked with partners or alone and were assisted by teachers, parents, and DECA chapter members. Ember Dugger, Jesse Delane, and Kamryn Forsmann are the coordinators of this project.

Selected business plans students have created will be awarded titles such as Best in Pets, Best in Hospitality, Best in Service, etc. All students will receive a certificate for completing a business project, and students with awarded business plans will receive a medal. At the conference, 4th-grade students and DECA members will attend four business workshops hosted by local entrepreneurs: Jim and Darcy Nelly with Nelly Broadcasting, Holly Williams with The Tin Can Co., Wendy Ostermiller with Fur Family Cinemas, and Brian McKarcher with Living Waters.
