The high school’s two Virtual Enterprise International teams – the Worldwide Entertainment Corporation and Entertainment Express firms – successfully competed in the VEO Youth Business Summit from April 15-17.

On April 15, the firms’ department heads participated in a human resources, accounting and marketing competition at Microsoft in Manhattan. On the following day, the COE and COO of each firm were paired up with other schools across the world in a Global Challenge. On the Summit’s final day, both of Islip’s VE firms competed in the International Trade Show against more than 3,000 high school firms across the world at the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal.

Worldwide Entertainment, which supplies party themes and food packages to customers, and Entertainment Express, a mobile bus-themed entertainment company, placed in two out of the three events and brought home a combined three medals: two gold medals in the Sales Material category and a silver medal in Booth Design. The firms will close out the school year by completing their companies’ annual reports.
