Three students from the East Meadow School District were recognized for their meaningful artwork at the district’s board of education meeting on March 11.
Their work was submitted as part of the district’s Digital Citizenship Poster Contest, which asked students, K-12, to depict the theme of “Think Before You Hit Send.”
Three winners, one from each level, were chosen from the elementary, middle and high school levels. They included Bowling Green fifth grader Amreen Ahmed, Woodland Middle School eighth grader Ilyana Kleiner, and W.T. Clarke High School sophomore Emmanuel Collazo. Each winner was presented with their framed artwork by Director of Music and Art Kelly Gelfer. The pieces will be hung in every district classroom for the level they represent as well as the winner’s main offices.
“The goal of the contest was to heighten the awareness of digital citizenship in our students,” said Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction Dr. David Casamento. Digital citizenship refers to the responsible use of technology, including the prevention of cyberbullying, online safety, and digital health and wellness.
The district commends these students and the entire East Meadow community for making online safety a priority.
