Syosset High School’s Lindsey Cohen
Winner in Logo Design Contest
For Child Abuse Prevention Services (CAPS)
SYOSSET, N.Y. – Lindsey Cohen, a sophomore at Syosset High
School, is the winner of a logo design contest sponsored by Child Abuse
Prevention Services (CAPS), Long Island’s leading organization dedicated to
preventing child abuse and neglect. CAPS asked high school students from
across the Island to create a logo for “SurfSafe!,” the Internet-safety program
for middle school students that the organization plans to debut this fall.
Cohen, a Woodbury resident and a student in teacher Diane Gregov’s
advertising and design class at Syosset High School, created a logo depicting a
computer on a familiar traffic safety sign. She will receive a $50 U.S. Savings
Bond courtesy of CAPS.
