Thanks and hooray to the students at Progress High School, for making the store-front windows festive for the holiday season. For the past five years the Grand Street BID in Williamsburg has challenged high-school students to make the windows and season a bit brighter as part of the Holiday Window Display Contest it sponsors.
This year, one of the student groups from Progress High School created a holiday display with messages of hope such as “Dear people of color, you are beautiful,” “Dear LGBT you are loved and accepted.”
Art teacher Diasy Schiff helped the students design and implement the decorations.
Empire Locksmith, located on Grand Street, was one of the businesses who participated in the competition.
