The District is pleased to announce that three high school student-artists have been recognized for their outstanding artwork in two regional competitions.
  
Jason Novetti and Casey DePalma’s photography won Best In Show during the Long Island Media Arts Competition at Five Towns College. The annual venue provides opportunities for Long Island students to enter media artwork in a juried competition.
     
In addition, Anna Simos was named the winner of the 2012 Astoria Federal Savings Teen Photo Contest. This year’s theme was “Eye on Style.” Anna won a $250 cash prize and a $100 grant for the photography program, and her photography will also be featured in LIU Post’s ninth annual 12x12 High School Art Exhibition from May 4-May 10.
