Farmingdale students prevail at competition

June 18, 2017 by  

The Long Island Business Teachers Association holds a yearly competition and this year several Farmingdale High School students received awards. Students annually are nominated and participate in this event which is focused on helping them become future leaders in business.

Students are nominated in several categories which include Business Principles, Business Law, Web Design, Accounting, Business Calculations, College Accounting and Computer Applications. High School teachers nominated two students in each category for the contest. The students who were selected had to complete a multiple-choice test which had several dozen questions or take an exam on computer performance to be eligible for the awards.

Students wishing to obtain careers in their fields could work with a local print company to prepare resumes which would highlight their achievements to prospective employers while they attend college.

A luncheon was held to recognize the winners and the students who won awards were Christian Roth for placing in Business Principles, Andrew Needham, for placing in Business Law, Nicole Hamberger and Danielle Hopkins for placing in Web Design, Delia Masterson and Avery Stevenson for placing in Accounting, Anthony Barbuto and Willie Wenzel for placing in Business Calculations, Matthew Pinna for placing in College Accounting and Anthony Bhasin for placing in Computer Applications.

During the luncheon, several other awards were presented. Joseph Schmidt, earned a $500 scholarship for college meeting the criteria of having completed the required credits in business education. Teacher Jonas Viik received an award for Teacher of the Year for his role in being a positive influence to students and creating an enthusiastic educational experience.
