Artwork Winners Featured in Upcoming Peace Calendar

Madelyn Law from Smithtown Elementary School and Ilysa Sirota from High School East have been named winners for their artwork in the annual 2016 Shanti Peace poster contest.
The images designed by Law and Sirota will be featured in the Shanti Fund’s annual calendar. Both were awarded $146 for their winning designs (the age Ghandi would be if he were alive) by the Shanti Fund organization. Both students were also recently recognized with certificates at a ceremony by Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone. This is the second time Sirota was chosen as a winner. Last year, she took the top prize in the competition.

 For more than 12 years, volunteers of Shanti Fund have been actively promoting peace through educational programs like their annual peace poster competition.
