The Westhampton Beach High School Virtual Enterprise team took home top awards in various categories at the VE National Business Plan Competition, held April 17-18.
Team EcoEats placed first in the QuickBooks category, sixth in the human resources category, and seventh in both the business plan and finance categories.
EcoEats earned its spot at the national VE competition after competing at the Long Island Regional Conference and Exhibition, coordinated by the nonprofit Virtual Enterprises International. They were one of only two teams in the country to advance to the national competition in all five categories: business plan, human resources, finance, QuickBooks and marketing.
The students’ virtual company sells edible spoons, sporks and straws. They developed the business to combat the enormous amount of waste caused by the disposal of plastic utensils.
The Westhampton Beach High School VE program requires students to create a business concept and formulate plans to market it.
The Westhampton Beach School District extends its congratulations to EcoEats on their exceptional performance.
