The awards were presented during a Veteran’s Day assembly at the school, 5902 6th Avenue, by Stanley Lewis from the Brooklyn Borough President’s Office.

This year’s top prize went to Anastasia Domenech who wrote an essay about her father, who served in Iraq. Senator Marty Golden also addressed the students.
