Shanti Fund Artwork Winner

James Wilson Young Middle School eighth-grader Rachel Soong has been named a winner in this year’s Shanti Fund countywide art design contest. Rachel’s winning selection will be included in the charitable organization’s 2016 calendar.

Since 9/11, volunteers of the Shanti Fund have been actively promoting peace through education in Suffolk County school districts. Through this contest, they invite students to create artwork along that theme. Winning pieces are displayed in an art exhibit at the H. Lee Dennison Building in Hauppauge, and several works are chosen for the annual Shanti Fund calendar.
