Team of students from MacArthur High School and Division Avenue High School recently participated in the 2019 Northwell Health Spark! Challenge, where both schools were honored for their outstanding posters highlighting one of the many careers an individual can have in science, technology, engineering and mathematics-related healthcare fields.

MacArthur's science research and graphic design students, under the guidance of teachers Dr. David Friedman, Deja Gomes-Vance and Matthew Zausin, partnered for the challenge. The group was recognized as the second place poster winner in the competition, out of approximately 50 schools, for their poster on cyber security engineering. The students were presented with $1,500 during 5th annual Spark! Challenge Awards Ceremony.

Division Avenue High School students also attended the ceremony with teacher Mark Engels and Assistant Principal Jaclyn Guidice. The students proudly earned the Poster Rookie Award and $1,000 for their poster on the role of an Assistant General Counsel. The students used their Photoshop skills to bring their creation to life.

The Spark! Challenge is designed each year to ignite student interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics healthcare careers. Earlier in the year, both teams participated in different on-site experiences to observe a Northwell Health career. Students were then asked to create a career advertisement for one of the careers that they observed during their visit to Northwell Health. They connected their career advertisement to Northwell Health's Culture of C.A.R.E. (Connectedness, Awareness, Respect, and Empathy) patient promises and each team conducted a two-minute presentation for Northwell's senior executives during the ceremony which related to their project.
