East Meadow High School’s Energym placed first in the fourth annual Nassau County Comptroller’s Entrepreneurial High School Challenge.

The team comprised of nine business students competed against 20 teams from 13 Nassau County high schools at the Theodore Roosevelt Legislative and Executive Building in Mineola in this year’s entrepreneurial challenge, “StartUp Nassau.”

During the competition, each team presented a business plan and prototype that could benefit local universities and Nassau County to a panel of judges including entrepreneurs, community leaders and Nassau County Comptroller George Maragos.

Energym received $2,500 for winning the competition, provided by HAB Bank for their business plan to manufacture and market a device that stores bicycle’s kinetic energy to power electrical devices.
 
East Meadow High School Business and Technology Education Chairperson and competition advisor Toni McIntosh congratulate these students for their astonishing accomplishment.

“A job well done to these students for placing first in this prestigious competition as this was only our second time entering since it began in 2012. I am beyond impressed with how well they did.”
