Tappan Zee High School’s 2018-19 PTA Reflections Arts Contest entrants were honored at a reception hosted by TZHS PTSA Reflections Coordinator Helena Bardusco in the high school auditorium yesterday.

Works submitted for the Reflections contest are on public display in the auditorium throughout the month of April and include visual arts, photography, literature and film production that respond to the theme “Heroes Around Me.” Four students earned awards at the regional level, and two students–Laura McCabe and Cadia Lundemo (pictured)–received state awards of merit for their work.
