Students K-6 invited to participate in “What are you thankful for?” Thanksgiving Day Creative Celebration
State Senator Jeff Klein today announced the launch of the New York State Senate’s Thanksgiving Day Creative Celebration for elementary school students in the 34th Senate District. To honor and celebrate Thanksgiving, students in kindergarten through sixth grade are encouraged to participate in this statewide competition.
Senator Jeff Klein said: “Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on all our blessings and thank our parents, family and friends for the kindness and support they have shown us over the past year. It’s also a time to give back, help out our communities and endeavor to make the world a better place. I hope all students in the 34th Senate District enter this fun creative contest and let me know ‘what they are thankful for.’ I look forward to hearing from you!”
The theme of the contest is “What are you thankful for?” Students should submit their one-page essay, poetry or art work electronically to klein.nysenate.gov. Acceptable file formats include jpeg or pdf.
All entries must be submitted by November 19, 2015. Participating students will have their work published online in the Senate's Thanksgiving Day Showcase and receive a certificate from Senator Klein.
