LARGO – The Largo High School winners of Anthony Telesca Foundation Safe Driving Art Contest were presented with their prizes Jan. 22.
First prize went to Cambry Gordon, who received a prize of two roundtrip airline tickets donated by JetBlue Airways and $200. Yacinia Colachio received $100 for her second place entry.
The competition asked students to design a poster that effectively communicates to teenagers the dangers of unsafe driving practices.
Along with sponsoring the competition, the Anthony Telesca Foundation provided $1,000 to the Largo High School art and driver’s education departments on behalf of the two winners. The nonprofit foundation works with public safety and law enforcement organizations, high school districts and community business leaders to help educate and encourage teenagers to drive safely. Knology was a corporate supporter for the contest.
