Jan. 8, the Anthony Telesca Foundation and Knology, a corporate supporter, presented Countryside High students Brianna Kurzynowski and Ashley Weltz with awards for their winning entries in the annual Anthony Telesca Foundation Safe Driving Art Contest.

For her first-place entry, Kurzynowski received a prize of $200 and two round-trip airline tickets donated by JetBlue Airways. Weltz received $100 for her second-place entry. Awards are based on the poster that most effectively communicates to teenagers the dangers of unsafe driving practices.

The Telesca Foundation also provided $500 to the Countryside High art department on behalf of the two winners.

Principal Gerald Schlereth and state Rep. Carl Zimmermann, D-Palm Harbor, who is also a teacher at Countryside High, participated in the award presentations. Both are strong proponents of teenagers driving safely.

The Anthony Telesca Foundation is a nonprofit organization that works with public safety and law enforcement organizations, high school districts and community business leaders to help educate and encourage teenagers to drive safely.
