Babylon Junior-Senior High School students enrolled in Claire Reilly’s Virtual Enterprises class recently participated in the Long Island Regional Conference and Exhibition, held at Long Island University, CW Post Campus to engage in a series of mock-business exercises.

The Long Island Regional Conference and Exhibition brings together more than 2,000 students, educators and business leaders on an annual basis, as approximately 90 total student-firms attend and engage in friendly competition to represent the virtual economy. The attending students competed for their booth designs, salesmanship, impact marketing, amongst other areas. 

Babylon’s attending firm, Wave Works, received a gold medal for its website design and a silver medal for its company newsletter. In addition, the student sales people made close to 100 mock sales during the competition. According to Mrs. Reilly, the students were also required to submit a written business plan, as well as present an oral business plan before a team of judges.
