Business Students Participate In VEI Trade Show
Students at the Virtual Enterprise Trade Show / Competition

On Thursday, January 10th, students in Mr. Ketterer’s Virtual Enterprise class pitched their business plan and showcased their startup company in their first Trade Show and Competition held at Long Island University. Over 1,500 students from various high schools across Long Island had the opportunity to sell their products and network with other Virtual Enterprise students, administrators, and business professionals.

The Virtual Enterprise course is a new course that was introduced this year, and provides students with the chance to start their own virtual company. Students gain real experience that covers all aspects of running a successful business. As part of the course, students become leaders and continuously develop in demand skills and competencies.

To help prepare for the competition, the students presented their ideas to Comsewogue’s School to Career Advisory Committee during its second meeting on Tuesday, January 7th. At this meeting, members discussed Comsewogue’s Graduate Profile, and how current and future courses can incorporate the skills and learning experiences that students need to become successful in their futures.

Currently, the School to Career Advisory Committee has over 50 members, which consist of various business professionals, industry leaders, teachers, administrators, parents, and students. New members are always more than welcome to attend. If you would like to learn more about the School to Career Advisory Committee, or are interested in joining, please contact Mr. Mosca or Mr. Ketterer for more information.
