HAUPPAUGE, N.Y. – On Tuesday, June 4th, Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker congratulated a Longwood Middle School 5th grade student, Fatimah Chaudhary, who won first place in the Suffolk County “Be Pool Smart” Poster Contest.
“I selected Fatimah’s poster to be in the running for this year’s “Be Pool Smart” poster contest out of the many that came through my office. I congratulate Fatimah on a job well done and thank her for helping us spread the word on pool and water safety,” said Legislator Anker.
Fatimah Chaudhary, a fifth grader, won first place in the county’s “Be Pool Smart” Poster Contest. Each year, the county hosts the “Be Pool Smart” poster contest to raise awareness about the importance of pool safety and to help prevent incidences of drowning.
