Press Release:-After rounds of evaluation two teams from St. Lucia have advanced to the final round in the Global Entrepreneurship Week DECA Idea Challenge 2016.
The DECA Idea Challenge is a premier event of Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) where student teams are dared to tap into their creativity and reinvent plastic water bottles into an original creation.
