TZHS art students won five awards, including two first place prizes, in the Center for Safety and Change (formerly Rockland Family Shelter) 10th Annual Ending Violence Against Women & Girls Art Poster Competition. Two of the poster designs tied for first place, and a generous decision was made to award them both equally, with each student receiving a five-hundred dollar first prize for her poster design. First Place honors went to both Zoe Szmulewicz, for her design titled “What Will You Do?”, and to Amanda Violetto, for her poster called “We Wonder Why.”
Additionally, three TZHS students each received an Honorable Mention. These students, Sandra Goldstein-Lehnert for “Three Wise Women,” Rachel Maggiore for “Roots of Abuse,” and Ellen Xing for “At the Roots” will each receive a one-hundred dollar award for their posters.
Overall, Tappan Zee High School won the Winning School award, for Drawing & Painting and Advanced Painting classes’ participation.
