Local student wins national poster contest

GREECE — A fifth-grade student from St. Lawrence School has been named the first-place winner for the poster she created as part of a national safety contest.

Olivia Beach received a laptop and her framed poster, which will be displayed at school, during an award presentation at the school Jan. 8, according to a press release. She is a student in Kim Gallagher’s Spanish class, which participated in the contest sponsored by the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children’s Center.

The contest was open to elementary students nationwide during Hispanic Heritage Month, which runs from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15. Students were asked to come up with artwork around the theme, "My Rules of Security — Mis Reglas de Seguridad."

Contest runners-up were from Texas and Arizona.
