HAUPPAUGE, N.Y. – On Tuesday, June 5th, Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker congratulated and presented a proclamation to Sophia Trapani, the second place winner of the Suffolk County “Be Pool Smart” Poster Contest from Coram Elementary School.
“I selected Sophia’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 her on a job well done and thank her for her part in helping us spread the word on pool and water safety,” said Legsislator Anker.
Sophia Trapani, a second grader, tied for second 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. Students are asked to participate by creating a poster with relevant pool safety tips. The winning poster is displayed on the front cover of the Suffolk County Department of Health Services’ pool safety brochure.
This year’s first place winner, Anna Humann of Connetquot, will have her winning poster featured on the 2018 Suffolk County Pool Safety and Drowning Prevention brochure of the County Executive, County Legislature, and County Health Department.
