NYLON – In honor of our 45th Earth Day, the New York State Senate is holding an Earth Day Poster Contest for 2015, open to all students Kindergarten through 6th grade.
According to a press release from Senator Catherine Young, this year’s Earth Day theme is “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.” Through their artwork, students are encouraged to convey a real commitment they are making to improve the environment. The winning poster will be displayed on the Senator’s website and all participants will receive a certificate of appreciation. Schools wishing to take part in this year’s contest must submit entries by April 6.
“Our communities are blessed with some of the state’s most beautiful natural environments,” said Senator Young. “Preservation of these resources, such as our lakes, rivers, forest and state parks for future generations would not be possible without events like Earth Day raising public awareness. ‘Reduce, Reuse, Recycle’ is not just a slogan for one day, it is a way of life we should all strive for every day.”
Schools wishing to take part in this year’s event must submit entries by April 6, via the link on Senator Young’s website, young.nysenate.gov.
