DECA Service Pumpkin Decorating

Melanie Meyer, Reporter

On Monday, October 11, DECA students (association of marketing) were provided pumpkins to decorate however they wanted. Those pumpkins were a part of community service. Nursing homes and local downtown Hartland businesses received these festive treats. 

 

Other Arrowhead staff and students had to provide their own. Pumpkins may not be carved, just painted or decorated. 

 

I haven’t done any drawing or painting recently so I loved having an opportunity to do something creative,¨ says Lindsay Martin, a current Arrowhead senior. 

 

Thursday, October 14, was when students had finished pumpkins back to Arrowhead. They were dropped off in the North Campus front entrance foyer. Pictures of the student and their pumpkin were turned in on Canvas by 11:59 pm. The pumpkins were on display in the front foyer until Saturday morning. 

 

The following Saturday and Sunday, the pumpkins were delivered to downtown businesses and nursing homes. While this event was all about giving back to the community, participants may also win mystery prizes. 

 

The different categories that offered prizes were: DECA-iest, spookiest, most creative, and best marketing related. Prizes go to those with the top pumpkins in Arrowhead and the most liked on social media. In order for it to count, participants must use #DECAHalloween when posting on social media.
