DECA students from Plainview JFK High School met with Nassau County Legislator Judy Jacobs, D-Woodbury, to discuss their award-winning projects.
The students based their DECA project on the importance of entrepreneurship.
"It was extremely interesting to learn from the students," Jacobs said. "They spent many hours interviewing people and preparing for their project.
The Plainview students will now take their projects into state competition.
"They are just a terrific group of young people who represent our future," Jacobs said.
