Our Lady of Victory Students Receive High Honors at the Diocese of Rockville Center’s 2015 Respect Life Contest “Each of us is a Masterpiece of God’s Creation,” was the theme for this year’s annual Respect Life Contest sponsored by the Respect Life Office of the Diocese of Rockville Centre. Participation in the contest is through music, photography, essay, video clip, photomontage, poetry, and bookmark design. The contest is designed to educate and provide a platform for youth to express and share their ideas and feelings on Respect Life issues that promote the dignity and respect for all persons from conception through natural death. With the support of our 8th grade Religion teachers, Miss Mangione and Mrs. McAloon, all of our 8th graders submitted an entry to be considered for the contest. Over 1,200 students throughout the Diocese submitted their original works. Our Lady of Victory School, once again, received some of the highest honors in the contest. We are so proud to announce the following students were recognized for their moving creativity and thoughtfulness: Music Rachel Lapidus – First Place Ashley Caturano – Third Place Photography Julianna Merino – First Place Essay Colleen O’Connor – Second Place Video Clip Lauren Firoz – Second Place Photomontage Terence Coyne – Second Place Poetry Brian Dodson – Finalist Bookmark Design Kaitlyn Walsh - Finalist These students were honored at an awards ceremony held on March 26th, at Kellenberg Memorial High School at which Bishop Andrzej Zglejszewski presided.
