Darwing Mendez, Barry Tech Digital Design student from the Freeport UFSD, took first place in the 2016 New York Committee for Occupational Safety and Health (NYCOSH) YouthSAFE Poster Contest. Young artists were challenged to bring a message of workplace safety to fledgling workers and employers. Darwing’s winning design will be distributed on posters to schools throughout New York State next year. The high school junior is honing his skills as a student in Doris Aresta's Digital Design class.
