Long Beach High School student photographers Elliot Schenck and Sebastian Muzikar were selected as winners in the Photographic Federation of Long Island (PFLI) Youth Showcase competition. Schenck’s photo, “Maybe We'll See,” won first place in the Photojournalism category and Muzikar’s photo, “Sunset on the Beach,” won second place in the Scapes category.

Both photos will be moving onto a national contest for the Photographic Society of America's Youth Showcase.

“We are very proud of our talented photographers for being recognized in this noteworthy competition,” stated Julia Lang-Shapiro, Long Beach director of media, visual and performing arts. “We look forward to seeing them move on to the next stage of this competition.” PFLI is a nonprofit organization of camera clubs from Nassau and Suffolk counties and the five boroughs of New York City.

The district also congratulates and acknowledges the students’ photography teacher Lorraine Levchenko.
