Student Art Shares Important Message  thumbnail143556
Five High School student-artists have entered the New York State Office of Information Technology Services’ computer safety contest. The competition works to engage young people to think about cybersecurity through the creation of posters that will encourage their peers to use the internet safely and securely.

Under the guidance of art teacher Katerina Kyriakakis, students Milayna Balthazar, Elizabeth Carrera, Alyssa Intini, Robert Manginello and Emmie Meyer will have their creative entries judged in early 2020.

“We are grateful for the efforts of the students and the twofold mission of this contest: to build awareness and make a positive impact on their classmates on cybersecurity issues while also enabling them to harness their creativity and to take a unique approach to help develop solutions with their visions,” Principal Jonathan Hart said. “We wish them well in the final part of the competition and thank Ms. Kyriakakis for encouraging their self-expression.”
