Third-Grader Wins Dental Poster Contest

Steven Hernandez, a third-grader at John F. Kennedy, was named the winner of the Children’s Dental Health Month contest in the second and third grade category, presented by the Hauppauge-based Suffolk County Dental Societies.

For creating a poster showing beautiful smiles, Hernandez was recognized by Suffolk Country Dental Societies’ Paul Markowitz at a special ceremony at the UPSKY Long Island Hotel in Hauppauge, and was awarded a certificate, a gift bag and a $25 gift card to Target.  He was among approximately 50 JFK students who participated by submitting posters to the contest, all of whom received a certificate from the society.
