World AIDS Day Poster Contest
Students in Mrs. D’Angelo’s Health classes made posters for World AIDS Day to help raise awareness of the on-going problem with HIV and AIDS among teens. Although the number of people dying from AIDS has declined over the last 20 years, more than one in five people infected today are 13-24 years of age. Spreading a message of prevention is extremely important in protecting our youth. Students hung their posters in the school halls and bathrooms to help spread the message. This year, the Central New York HIV Care Network also had a World AIDS Day poster contest. Four students entered the contest and won gift cards for their poster entries. John Wikiera, Chairperson for the HIV Care Network, came to school to talk to the students about their posters and present them with the gift cards. Congratulations to Grace Stensland, Hannah D’Agostino, Makenna Robbins and Ryan Durand!
