Students in grades 2 through 5 were asked to submit their Halloween-inspired artwork last month in a contest sponsored by Assemblyman Edward Braunstein. Out of over 400 entries, one winner per grade has been chosen.
The second grade prize went to Amber Zhou, who attends P.S. 203, The Oakland Gardens school in Bayside. The third grade prize was awarded to Amy Zhou, student at Peihong Art Studio in Flushing. The fourth grade prize went to Nora Gupta, who attends P.S. 115 in Floral Park. The fifth grade prize was awarded to Danielle Dennehy, student at Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament Catholic Academy in Bayside.
“Congratulations to all of the winners,” Braunstein said. “Over 400 students from schools throughout Queens participated in my office’s Halloween Essay & Drawing Contest and I was extremely impressed with their outstanding creative and artistic entries.”
Each winner received an Amazon gift card and all participants received a New York State Assembly Certificate of Merit.
