A Queens middle school student took the grand prize earlier this month in the 14th annual ECOFEST Poster Competition. Arianna Stergiou’s work, along with the other category winners, is displayed in the lobby of the Apple Bank for Savings, at 2100 Broadway and West 73rd Street, through April 30.

Stergiou, a student at the Marie Curie Middle School MS 158Q in Bayside, designed a poster that featured a message about the dangers of global warming and its effect on polar bears in the Arctic Circle. Borough President Scott Stringer and City Council Member Gale Brewer were also on hand to congratulate Stergiou and the other winners at the ceremony, held in the landmark bank building.
