East Northport McDonald’s recently recognized twenty-five local student artists through its annual McDonald’s Art Contest of which eighteen were from Kings Park Schools.

The contest draws students from surrounding school districts. The winning artwork is put on display for one year.

“This year’s 12th Annual Art Contest student participants come from five local districts, including Kings Park, Elwood, Commack, Half Hollow Hills and Northport/East Northport,” said Lonny Weiner, Vice President of Kaufman Enterprises, the McDonald’s franchisee.

According to Weiner there are four categories of participants; elementary, intermediate, middle and high school.

"The theme this year, What Makes Me Happy, drew 700 submissions," Mr. Weiner said.

Stephanie Montecalvo, Assistant Principal of and Elementary Schools said “every year East Northport McDonald’s offers this award. The winners of the contest have their artwork professionally matted, framed and displayed for a full year in the restaurant. Afterwards, they can bring them home.”

The winners and their families are invited to a reception at the East Northport McDonald’s on East Jericho Turnpike where they have an opportunity to view their artwork, receive their award and are treated to a meal and celebratory cake.

Bridget O’Keefe, a sixth grader from William T Rogers Middle School, who picked up an Honorary Mention for her piece inspired by the television show Glee, enjoyed the whole experience. “I have been drawing, sewing and sculpting since I was very young.”

The winning artwork can be viewed at the East Northport McDonalds and on the restaurant’s website.
