M-W High School students recognized at literary and visual arts competition

on June 3, 2016

Three Monroe-Woodbury High School students were recently recognized at the 2oth Annual Siegelbaum Literary and Visual Arts Competition sponsored by The Holocaust Museum at Rockland Community College in Suffern, NY.

All three winners are students of Mrs. Durkin:

Brianna Nonnon, 1st Place — High School Art Division

Seraya Friedman, 2nd Place for her work, Humiliation — High School Visual Arts Division

Allison Vasquez, Honorable Mention — High School Poetry Division

The theme for this school year’s competition was Tell It Forward. According to the Holocaust Museum’s web site, the objective of the competition is to foster an awareness of the Holocaust, to provide students with an opportunity to consider the ways one person can make an impact on the world and to promote dialogue and respect among all people.

This competition has been established through the generosity of Judy Siegelbaum, in memory of her husband Dr. Harold z”l Siegelbaum, whose vision helped found the Museum.

Congratulations to the M-W students and Mrs. Durkin!
