Syracuse City School District students design bookmarks to benefit Children's Miracle Network

Students from H. W. Smith Elementary School in Syracuse have put crayon to paper and designed a collection of bright and colorful bookmarks that are being used to help raise money for the Children's Miracle Network. Money raised for Children's Miracle Network stays in the Syracuse community to benefit pediatric services at University and Crouse hospitals.

Under the guidance of University Hospital employee and local artist Susan Keeter, a dozen students, chosen for their artistic talents, designed posters depicting a variety of images from fire-breathing dragons to CMN's rainbow-colored balloon logo. Artwork was then selected to be reproduced into bookmarks.

"This is a wonderful way for young children to use their talents and gifts to benefit other young children," said Toni Gary, director of the Children's Miracle Network.

The bookmark designs were created by Jameel Balenton, Elizabeth Bradshaw, Grace Bradshaw, Justin Callahan, Jung-Hoon Choi, Neil Damron, Vincent Donoso, Chad Healy, Dajung Kim, Rylah Orr, Mylien Phan and Quang Phan.

The bookmarks were printed by Eastwood Litho.
