Three LBHS Students Win at NCC Arts and Science Fair

Three Long Beach High School students earned awards at the Nassau Community College Honors Program’s 19th Annual Arts and Science Fair. This year’s event, held on March 17, featured the theme, “Identity,” and asked students to incorporate aspects of themselves into their work.

Students from schools across Long Island presented their science projects, artwork and monologues to NCC professors who served as judges.

Ninth-grader Meilin Garfinkel received a Best in Show distinction for an Alcohol Ink and Marker piece titled, "Fluorescence” (pictured). Margaret O'Malley-Rebovich, also in ninth-grade, was recognized with an Honorable Mention for her Ceramic Stoneware, "Untitled.” Tenth-grade student James O’Connor achieved a third-place honor in the Monologue competition.

Award-winning work is currently on display at NCC’s Building G and in the College Center Building in an exhibit that will run until March 31.
