On March 29, the Walter G. O’Connell Industry Advisory Board hosted its first Business Olympics in the Walter G. O’Connell Copiague High School auditorium.
Teams of business students were given the task to remediate and revitalize an abandoned building at 1305 S. South Strong Ave. in Copiague. Four teams of students – BizHub, Eagles on Wheels, Vovola and Revival – presented a variety of innovative ideas during their 10-minute presentations, followed by a five-minute question and answer session from judges.
Each team created a Google presentation, commercial for their business and promotional materials to present to the judges. Judges included Industry Advisory Board members from local community businesses, Copiague School District administrators and faculty and Copiague Board of Education members.
The winner was Team Revival for their gym/spa combination. This team included Kriyal Patel, Jeannie Guelee, Catherine Gonzales and Alexsandra Bugajczyk.
