In celebration of its tenth anniversary, the Kids of Distinction program is offering more scholarships and planning a festive gala that will look back on a decade of supporting our most civic-minded children.

Oyster Bay Town Supervisor John Venditto, together with Kids Helping Kids co-founders Robert A.J. Eslick and Philip M. Eslick, kicked off the search for a new batch of “kids of distinction” at the end of February. Nominations are due by May 16. Winners will be recognized at a special ceremony held by the board of trustees on Tuesday, June 17 at 7 p.m. with a citation from the Town and a $2,000 scholarship from Kids Helping Kids.

Standing at Plainview-Old Bethpage John F. Kennedy High School, U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, joined by the Long Island STEM Hub and dozens of Long Island students who are part of the school’s engineering and robotics team, announced her education agenda to encourage more youths, especially women, to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), bolster engineering education programs across Long Island’s elementary, middle, and high schools and draw more STEM teachers to educate children in high-need areas.
With eight of nine of the fastest growing industries requiring math and science proficiency and women, minority, and low-income students underrepresented in STEM-related careers, Gillibrand is pushing for federal measures to close the achievement gap and bring more STEM-related programs, such as the Long Island STEM Hub’s Career Academies, to schools across Long Island. With the success of POB-JFK high school’s targeted STEM curriculum and engineering program, the Hub will be launching an additional career academy in engineering next school year.
