Feuerstein's noble aspirations earned him the grand prize in a competition that drew more than 1,300 entries from kids ages 5 to 12 throughout Long Island, Brooklyn, Queens, and Westchester. Feuerstein received a new laptop computer, as did Plainview-Old Bethpage Middle School, where he attends. The school's principal, John McNamara, and Feuerstein's fifth grade teacher, Carole Green, were presented the laptop at a ceremony for the essay contest winners in late August.
"We were thrilled to see so many children participate in the contest, and their essays were really unique and impressive," says Brian Edwards, Astoria Federal Savings' senior vice president and director of marketing. "This contest is a great way to get children to think about their goals for the future and also what it will take to get there."
