Joe Robach and the NYS Senate are hosting a poster contest for local students to celebrate Earth Day.  Since the first Earth Day was celebrated in 1970, over 20 million Americans have participated, helping to improve the quality of air we breathe and the water we drink. In addition, landmark legislation has been passed to help support this effort, such as the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act and the Endangered Species Act.

Joe Robach and The New York State Senate take this opportunity to celebrate the great strides New York has made in helping to improve our environment. From expanding the bottle bill to promoting green energy, New York is helping to make a difference.

To celebrate and honor Earth Day this year, Joe Robach and the New York State Senate are sponsoring a poster contest for children in grades K – 6. The theme of the Earth Day celebration is “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.” All entries will be displayed on Joe Robach’s website, with the winning poster being featured. Students are encouraged not only to be creative in their project, but also to convey a real commitment to making the environment a better place.
