Schoolyard Sugaring Maple Contest Photography on display at View


OLD FORGE — New York Agriculture in the Classroom (NYAITC) and View are excited to invite students, teachers, parents, communities, and the public to experience the photography of 26 New York student photographers and teachers in the “Schoolyard Sugaring Maple Contest Photography Exhibit.” The physical exhibit will be on display at View through June 20, and will display select student submissions from all 26 selected photographers.

Select student and teacher photographers were chosen to participate in the exhibit by a jury associated with View Arts and NYAITC staff.

Each year New York Agriculture in the Classroom, and industry partner the New York State Maple Foundation, challenge students and teachers from around New York state to engage with maple production through project-based learning and standards-based teaching in the classroom. Through the spring, participating students learn about and make maple syrup, from tapping to bottling and all steps in between. The culminating outcome is for students and teachers to submit a sample of student/school made maple syrup and photography that captures student and teacher engagement with the maple process.

The 2021 top photographers are Samuel Habermehl (Habermehl Home School-Elementary Division), Ava Lillicock (Malone Middle School-Middle School Division), and Alison Gabel (Gabel Home School-High School Division).

Other students in the exhibition also include: A. Blacksmith, A. Gabel, A. Lillicock, C. Ernenwein, X. Coughlin, E. Barker, E. Mattison, E. Smith, G. Alvardo, G. Wade, H. Bliss, I.  Smith, I. Giruzzi, J. Tyrrell, K. Brandt, K. Hlad, K. Kloster, K. Manney, K. Tyrrell, L. Hicks, L. Campeau, M. Landis, S. Habermehl, T. Miller, T. Roberts and T. Stringham.
