Honorees came from Great Neck North High School, Great Neck South High School, Herricks High School, Manhasset High School, Paul D. Schreiber High School, Roslyn High School and the Wheatley School.
The Town Board room was packed with family members, administration and school faculty who looked on as Supervisor Bosworth and the Town Board presented certificates of recognition to the students who briefly explained their innovative projects.
