The Connetquot High School Virtual Enterprise D.R.E.A.M. team has made history by becoming the first district VE firm to qualify to compete in the national round of the business plan competition, to take place on April 17 at the Javits Center in New York City.
Virtual Enterprise is a unique business class offered at Connetquot where the students create their own simulated business while mimicking the daily operations of a true business. Students collaborate, create products, and decide on roles within their company. This course has allowed students to be innovative and create relationships island-wide as they attend trade shows to share information with other students.
Some of the businesses the students created were named Dorm Décor, School Spirit Package, To Go Meals and more. D.R.E.A.M., a customizable college care package company based on affordability and convenience, has had the most success having won two gold plaques for best booth and best newsletter at a recent Long Island University trade show.
The Connetquot Central School District congratulates the D.R.E.A.M. team for their accomplishments and extends best wishes for success in the national business plan competition.
