This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Dimensional Lumber Woodworking.

Decks are nice to keep your feet out of the mud.  

Here's a decent video of installing cedar boards with screws:

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
 - Use wood screws and pilot holes
 - Use rot resistant wood - no pressure treated

To document your completion of the BB, provide the following:
  - Photo of the deck before the boards were installed
  - Photo of the deck after the 10 boards were installed.  Close enough to see the screws and general quality of work.

 - Thermally treated wood is acceptable
 - If you installed the deck already, you can skip the "before" pictures
