High school art student Emma Jakits recently received a first place award from the Agricultural Society of Queens, Nassau and Suffolk Counties at the 2019 Long Island Fair.

“I was so surprised that I was chosen,” said Jakits. “It was really cool seeing my work with the blue ribbon on it at the exhibit.”

“I’m excited to have Emma in my Photography 2 class this year,” said teacher Heather Toomey. “She is so talented, and I know everyone will see more of Emma’s amazing work this year."
