Gianaris Invites Students To Participate In Thanksgiving Celebration

State Senator Michael Gianaris is sponsoring the state senate Thanksgiving Day Creative Celebration for Western Queens elementary schools.

Eligible students are invited to submit a piece of artwork, poem or one-page essay expressing why they are thankful on this Thanksgiving.

The program is called “What Are You Thankful For?” and is offered to students in kindergarten through sixth grade.

“As Thanksgiving approaches, I encourage all our elementary school students to participate in this fun, reflective program,” Gianaris said. “The program gives students the opportunity to be creative and convey thanks for their family, friends and community. I look forward to seeing all of the imaginative submissions.”

Gianaris will reward each participant with a senate certificate. All submissions will be included in the state senate Thanksgiving Day showcase, an online, free-topublish booklet on the senate’s Web site.

Entries are due by November 28.
