In recognition of Bullying Prevention Month in November, the Town of Smithtown’s Youth Bureau held an anti-cyberbullying art contest. High School East junior AP student-artist Nethmi Withanage, under the direction of art teacher Timothy Needles, was chosen as the winner. The poster depicted her perception of cyberbullying and its impact. She was recognized at an awards ceremony on Nov. 14 and her poster will be featured in the lobby of the Suffolk County executive’s building in Hauppauge.
