Council Member Paul Vallone presented City Council Citations to the winners of Welcome to Whitestone’s “Whitestone Bridge Drawing Contest”. From more than 300 entries from Whitestone elementary school students, five were selected to be the winners by judges Devon O’Connor, Vallone and Director of Bridges East Raymond Webb. The five winners were Nicholas Berry, Ellie Choe, Mei Jiang, Athena Koutsothanasis and Joanna Li.
In addition to the citation, each winner received a $50 gift certificate from Welcome to Whitestone and a $10 gift card from Dunkin’ Donuts. The presentation was held at the council member’s district office.
