Fourth-Grader Designs Winning Bag for Stew Leonard’s


Isabelle Hennessey, a fourth-grader at John F. Kennedy, was recently named one of two Long Island winners of the “Design a Bag” contest promoted by the Stew Leonard’s store in Farmingdale.

Hennessey and several other JFK students who entered the contest were asked to create drawings that represented Stew Leonard’s “farm fresh produce.” The company chose two designs from entries they received from students across Long Island.

Hennessey’s design will be printed on new reusable bags available for sale at Stew Leonard’s beginning in August, with proceeds from the sales of the bags to be used for Stew Leonard’s charitable donations on behalf of sick children. Hennessey and her family will also be invited to the Stew Leonard’s Farmingdale location, where she will be honored and gifted with one of the bags.
