Two Virtual Enterprise teams from Carle Place High School recently participated in the Long Island Regional Conference and Exhibition at LIU Post. The event brought more than 2,000 Long Island students together with more than 100 firms representing the virtual economy.

Being part of Virtual Enterprises International allows student-entrepreneurs to gain meaningful career and business experiences. Together with their peers, they not only develop an idea for a company, but manage the day-to-day operations and build their business and entrepreneurial skills along the way.

During the event, Carle Place students promoted their two companies, Rise and Blinguard. Both firms connected with other Virtual Enterprise firms to buy and sell their products and services. Firms hosted booths to compete for trade show booth designs, salesmanship, marketing and more. They also presented business plans to a group of prestigious judges in hopes of qualifying for the National Business Plan Competition in April. One of the Carle Place firms, Rise, made it to the final round of the Long Island Business Plan Competition.

The Carle Place students look forward to continuing to grow their companies and business skills as the school year progresses.

DECA members from Carle Place Middle/High School recently participated in the regional DECA competition. They competed with students from across Nassau County in role plays involving scenarios within business management and administration, entrepreneurship, finance, hospitality and tourism, marketing and personal financial literacy. These role plays help students to hone their professional speaking and creative thinking skills.

Six Carle Place students were chosen to move up to the state level of competition based on their abilities to think creatively and present their ideas to the judges effectively. Senior Bartolomeo Zaino competed in the Hotel and Lodging Management role play where he earned a perfect score and received first place in Nassau County. Other students that placed included senior Olivia Docyk and junior Vincent Natalie for Sports and Entertainment Marketing role play, junior Jake Delio for Restaurant and Food Service Management, senior Aneesh Suri in the Human Resources event and senior Julia Fokas in the Hotel and Lodging role play.

The Carle Place School District congratulates these students and wishes them the best of luck as they continue to compete at the New York DECA State Competition this March in Rochester, N.Y.
