Fifty-five teams of more than 230 students from the district took their companies on the road this year as they participated in the 22nd annual Business Olympics competition on Nov. 17 at High School West. The School of Business in the Career & Technical Education Department, in cooperation with the Smithtown Industry Advisory Board, sponsors the annual event.

This year’s theme was “Business On Wheels” and teams were challenged to create a mobile business to venture capitalists. They had to develop a promotional and marketing campaign for their business as well as a model for their mobile business. All student teams were required to have a Google Slide Presentation, a commercial for their business, promotional materials and a marketing plan for their “business on wheels.”

Team Immerse – Zagham Doora, Harry Jung, Nicholas Leung, Shrey Thaker and Eric Zhang – were named the winners with their virtual reality mobile business.

Smithtown Industry Advisory Board members, district administrators and employees, local companies and organizations participated in the event and judged the students on their overall presentation.
