Comsewogue High School’s Virtual Enterprise (VE) Students earned First Place and a perfect score in the Program’s recent National Company Branding Competition- a Top Recognition in a highly competitive program!

Congratulations to all of the Business students in Mr. Ketterer’s Virtual Enterprise class and their firm SubZero, for achieving such an amazing accomplishment!

Over the past few years, Comsewogue has continued to develop its Business Education Department, and introduced courses like VE to help students gain the skills needed to find success in college and the workplace.

Virtual Enterprise is currently offered as a six college-credit course. The class provides students with the chance to start their own virtual companies, participate in competitions and trade shows, and ultimately gain valuable life experiences that involve all aspects of running a successful company.

This year, SubZero is one of the High School’s two VE firms. The company currently designs cooling products for athletes to help them stay cool while playing sports.

As part of the National Company Branding Competition, students were required to create an effective brand presence, which included the development of a company logo, color palette, business cards, professional letterhead, and other various elements of establishing a company brand.

“I am so proud of our firm. This win is a testament to our determination and growth as students who know how to function as effective employees,” said Emma Wiermann, SubZero’s CEO and a Senior at the High School.

Design consultant Jack Montoya, a Junior in VE, was also responsible for a large part of the company’s recent success. “We simply had a lot of fun in creating our company image and did what we were supposed to do to appeal to our customers,” he says.

The students would like to also thank their Administrators, the Board of Education, and the Community for their continued support of the Virtual Enterprise and Business Education Program.

In the meantime, students hope to continue to find great success in the future. Way to go Warriors!
