Columbia junior Ronnie Shuhart combined his computer and artistic skills to advocate for online safety in a statewide poster contest. He created an anti-cyber bullying poster in his Computer Graphics class using Adobe Photoshop CS4.

Shuhart was one of 12 winners from throughout New York State (450 entries). His poster design will be displayed on the NYS Keeping Kids Safe Online webpage and in the “Kids Safe Online” calendar published this fall.

“I’ve always been against bullying,” Shuhart said. “It’s good people will see this.”

Shuhart’s teacher Patti LeRoy said this was a good project for her students because “We always teach a positive aspect,” she said. “It’s very rewarding to see their hard work recognized.”

Shuhart’s poster design has been automatically entered in the National K-12 Poster Contest, conducted by the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center. Winners will be announced in May.
