Using their knowledge of the elements of art, the students designed posters around the theme of “Take Me Out to the Ball Game!”

After a panel of judges reviewed submissions, EJD seventh graders Sara Brunell and Shay Altman were selected as winners for the sixth – eighth grade category.

Both students were honored on the field during the May 4 Education Day at the NBT Bank Stadium in Syracuse.

Brunell and Altman were awarded Chiefs hats, certificates of honor and four tickets each to a future game.

All submitted posters from Central New York students also were on display throughout the stadium.
