Congratulations to Maria Belen Flores (Grade 11, Abbey Crew)!  She submitted the winning photo in the citywide New York City Outward Bound Crew photo contest!  Her photo will be featured on the NYCOB website and on their social media channels. Her photo will also be framed and displayed at the NYCOB Offices in Long Island City!  As the contest winner, she will receive a new Nikon camera valued at $400.  She will also be the official "staff photographer" for citywide Crew Olympics at the NYCOB office on May 29th.  Here is Maria’s winning photo on “what crew means to me”!!
