Wantagh MS Students Form Business Ideas for Class

Panel of judges reviews business plans formed by young entrepreneurs.

Students in Nancy O’Connor’s eighth-grade Business Management class at recently participated in a unique activity.

As part of a “shark tank” simulation, students formed their own businesses and presented them to a panel of seven judges, among whom were an entrepreneur, a realty advisor, a bank manager, and a librarian. The students were responsible for the creation of the company name, a logo and slogan, a mission statement, business cards, price lists, a grand-opening flyer, a public relations event and a one-minute radio commercial for their grand opening. 

A platinum award was given to Ruth Kupperberg for her cupcake business proposal. Sara Sneddon received a gold award for her custom t-shirt business idea. Kaitlyn Cerasi, Alexa Cohen, and Kelli Schmidt received a silver award for their frozen yogurt business plan.
