Legislator Tom Cilmi presented a proclamation to Anna Humann, winner of
this year’s “Be Pool Smart” poster contest.
Anna is a first grade student from Connetquot Elementary School in Islip
Terrace. Before being chosen by the Legislature’s Budget Review Office as the
overall winner, Anna’s poster was chosen by Legislator Cilmi’s office despite
stiff competition. More than 200 entries
were submitted to Legislator Cilmi’s office alone.
Legislator Cilmi said, “For many reasons, art is an important component
of a child’s education and learning about pool safety saves lives. My congratulations go out to Anna and all of
the students who participated, and I especially want to thank Mrs.
Spera-Bartlett from the East Islip School District for inspiring such
enthusiasm and creativity among her students.”
Shown with Legislator Cilmi are Anna, her
parents, sister and grandma, along with her art teacher, Mrs.
