 "My Favorite Movie"  Art Contest
      Sponsored by the William F. DiPietra Foundation

This year's art contest was open to first through fourth grade students at St. Elizabeth Catholic Academy, Ozone Park, NY.  WiIliam F. DiPietra (Bill) attended this school from 1981 to 1989.  To remember and celebrate Bill's love of film, the students were asked to draw a picture from their favorite movie.  The Foundation awarded $25 Amazon gift cards to three students in each grade.  What wonderful and creative entries we received!

Winners were chosen by Helen DiPietra, President of the William F. DiPietra Foundation, and Ms. Paulina Salazar.. Thank you to Mrs. J. Merckling, Academy art teacher, for her assistance with this project. Please enjoy the winning drawings!
