eSD Suffolk County Art Contest Winners Announced!
The first annual eSchoolData Login Page Art Contest was a resounding success, with over two dozen entries received. The contest runs regionally in NY over the course of the school year to promote as much student participation as possible. School districts in Suffolk County were the latest to complete the contest and will be followed by eSchoolData districts in the Western New York region. The Northeast region was the first area scheduled and was completed in December of 2014 followed by districts in Nassau and Westchester Counties. Participating districts’ initial entries were accepted from February 2015 through April 2015. After careful consideration, the voting committee selected the First, Second and Third Place winners below:
First Place – Rob Subtirelu (Connetquot School District)
Second Place – Amanda Crowley (Babylon District)
Third Place – Mia Karlin-Cappello (East Hampton School District)
The following students were awarded Honorable Mention:

Contestants were required to submit works of art that focused on a specific theme relative to current educational topics. This year’s theme was STEM + Art, and challenged students to find how art is incorporated into Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. Students were allowed to submit either a photograph or a scanned image of a drawing. The first place winner’s submission will appear on the eSchoolData login page as part of release 4.5 later this month and will remain until the next regional winner is announced. In addition, all winning submissions will be displayed on the eSchoolData website at: www.eschooldata.com
