Walter G. O’Connell Copiague High School business students vied for a chance to be named the winner in this year’s Business Olympics on March 29. Four teams of students competed in this year’s “Shark Tank” themed event in front of a panel of more than 15 judges including board of education members, administrators and local business owners.

Team Vis, Team STOMP, Team Medrano and Team Flypack each presented their ideas during a 10-minute pitch. The judges had an opportunity for a question and answer period following the presentation during a networking session. Each team created a commercial along with supporting marketing and promotional materials.

The winning team was Team Vis for their lighted staircase product. Team members were Alleksandra Bugajczyk, Kriyal Patel, Iris Romero, Abigail Romero and Owen Rosenberg. All of the teams will share more than $3,000 in prizes.
