Pine Tree second grade student Josephine Vitanza earned second place in the NYS PTA/National Road Safety Foundation DeFeet Distractions Traffic Safety Poster Contest.

Josephine designed the poster while she was a first grader at Sapphire Elementary School. As a result, the Sapphire PTA earned $500 and Josephine’s poster will be featured in the National PTA publications on traffic safety for the next few years.

Bravo, Josephine!
