On May 17, WGMS seventh grader, Marta Hevko (pictured at right), will be honored for winning the World Language week poster contest for LECNY (Language Educators of CNY) for grades 6-8.
Senior Anna Gonchar (pictured at left) from the high school won for grades 9-12 and will also be honored at that ceremony.
The LECNY Poster Contest was held back in March and was open to students in grades 6-12 whose teachers are current members of LECNY. One winner was chosen from grades 6-8 and another winner was chosen from grades 9-12.
The winners will be presented with certificates and a $50 check at the LECNY May celebration.
This year’s theme for National Foreign Language week was “Learn a new language, gain a new perspective.”
