It’s that time of year for Long Island’s Young Leaders to shine. The Young Professionals Chamber of Commerce (YPCC), a program of the Huntington Township Chamber of Commerce, will host its Tenth Annual Business Leadership Competition at Farmingdale State College on Wednesday, November 28, from 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Last year over 310 students from fourteen schools participated in this exciting day of competition demonstrating their knowledge through presentations in the categories of Fashion Marketing, Hospitality Services, Advertising, Graphic Design, Entertainment Marketing, Sports Management, Sports Marketing, Entrepreneurship, Travel and Tourism and Job Interview Skills. The students enjoyed breakfast and a luncheon followed by the awards ceremony. Every year the competition is bigger and better than the year before!
