Linda Mitchell (c.) coordinates the competition on behalf of the Chamber.

Tech teams competed against more than 384 students from 21 high schools in Nassau and Suffolk to design a brand identity for “Caribbean Resort,” a fictitious vacation spot.

The creative students had to present their concepts and designs for business cards, logos, and signage for this “new” business and then answer questions about their concepts. Students were ranked on their creativity, design skills and presentation skills.

The students were honored at a reception at LaunchPad in Huntington.
