Locust Valley artists awarded for hopeful artwork

Locust Valley High School students Humnaa Abid, Katelyn DiLorenzo and Mateo Santoro and Locust Valley Middle School students Christian DiPaolo and Gabriela Terrones-Abanto were named winners in the visual arts category of the 2023 National Reflections program at the SEPTA level in January.

Judges, art teachers and staff from Nassau County BOCES selected their works for their originality and creativity. The students created their art pieces based on the theme “I am hopeful because…” and expressed themselves in their unique ways. The students have had their pieces entered into the next phase of the program, which is the Nassau County region level.
