Comment on : PDS Student Earns Eiffel Tower Prize


PDS Student Earns Eiffel Tower Prize


Princeton Day School third-grader Sam Bernardi of Rocky Hill won a
grand-prize $500 scholarship in an art contest sponsored by the French
Embassy and the American Association of French Teachers commemorating the
120th anniversary of the Eiffel Tower.
Sam, pictured here with PDS Lower School French teacher Laurie Parker, was
one of five grand prize winners among more than 3,000 participants in
grades K-12 in the New York region who submitted original works of art
celebrating the Tower. The prize was announced Nov. 13 during a cermony at
the French Embassy in New York City.
Inspired by the French love of fashion, Sam submitted a hand-painted a
canvas bag reflecting the blue, white and red of the French flag, girders
of the tower and the number 120.
