Local business communities provide common ground for teachers, parents, students and business owners to build personal relationships that can elevate student achievement and increase civic participation.
Youth Art Showcase highlights the creativity of students in Suffolk County. Students are invited to display work in any media. The resulting exhibit always offers an eclectic glimpse into the lives our young community members!
In Destination Downtown, Smithtown Township Arts Council challenges students to take an active role in their business communities by using their creative talents to design a poster about their favorite business. Students are invited to choose any business in the Long Island community to highlight the quality of goods and services they appreciate.
STAC’s Annual Youth Art Showcase is funded in part by Suffolk County under the auspices of the Office of Film and Cultural Affairs, Steve Levy, County Executive, Town of Smithtown and Suffolk County Legislator Lynne C. Nowick
