Students at J.P. Taravella High School brought home two first-place awards in a South Florida Business Competition on Thursday. 

The event was hosted by Nova Southeastern University, where students representing Taravella’s business and finance department showcased their booth designs and business plans, winning two first-place awards in each category.

Finance teacher Laurie Acosta is excited to travel to New York City with her six students in April, competing in the National Business Plan Competition.

“I am so proud of our Virtual Enterprise students for bringing home these awards. It was a fantastic day for JPT,” she said.

The VE students’ business plan, ‘Accesoreyes,’ shared the mission statement that anyone who wears glasses should ‘love what they see when they look into the mirror’ by quickly and easily changing frames to match their fashion choices. 

Acosta congratulated Nikhil Singh, Aya Alam, Devesh Hargobin, Jason Mulder, Cedar Bachmann, and Alessio Sincore.

She also acknowledged the work of her sales and marketing team, which included Nicholas Jobe, Aylin Gonzalez, Caleb Theodule, Bryan Richards, Jeffrey Jacob, Bionca Gilpin, Nasir Beharie, Jeevan Vathielil, and Dorsainvil Jean.

The annual business plan competition encourages students to pitch game-changing ideas and potentially find funding for their business ventures. 

Competitors have the opportunity to meet and network with the kind of entrepreneurs they are training to become at J.P. Taravella.
