Glen Cove Boys & Girls Club member Angie Mendoza has been named the Regional Digital Arts Winner for the Boys & Girls Club of America’s 12th Annual Digital Arts Festival, sponsored by Comcast NBC Universal, Sony and the Cartoon Network.  Angie was recognized for her artwork entitled Healthy Lungs in the age 6- 9 age group Graphic Design category.

The theme of the Graphic Design segment of the Festival was Take It to the Street and required participating Club members to create a call-to-action poster that encourages respect, diversity and nonviolent solutions to a conflict.  Angie, demonstrating a sense of wisdom well beyond her tender age of seven, chose to focus on a healthy and responsible habits call to action by designing a poster of a cartoon character in the shape of healthy lungs holding a no-smoking sign.  “One of my family member smokes and I don’t like it.  Smoking is bad for you and I don’t want anyone to be unhealthy,” explained Angie about the reason behind her Healthy Lungs artwork. 

“Angie is quite an exceptional little girl and she worked really hard on designing this graphic.  She had a concept she envisioned and proceeded methodically, yet creatively to put this graphic together.  She took her time carefully tracing real lungs to create the cartoon and put in a lot of time and detail into the no smoking sign.  I’m very proud of how she put this together and I’m so glad she was recognized for her commitment to this project,” said Technology Instructor, Matt Gagliardi. 

Recognized as a regional winner, Angie will now go on to compete on a national level against other Boys & Girls Club regional winners in the same category.
