5th Grade Students Are Invited to Celebrate Earth Week
by Participating in the Earth Day Essay & Poster Contest
County Executive Ed Day and the Rockland County Environmental Management Council, an umbrella organization of the Rockland County Division of Environmental Resources, are hosting the 30th Annual Eleanor Burlingham 5th Grade Earth Day Essay & Poster Contest.
This year EMC is giving students the option to creatively address the contest topic through either a 500-word essay, poster, or poem. The topic is “How can we work together (with our family, friends, classmates, etc.) to restore our relationship with our planet?”
Students have until May 14th, 2021, to submit their entries to the Rockland County Environmental Management Council via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail to 50 Sanatorium Road, Building A, Room 614, Pomona, NY.
Winning entries will be invited to the annual awards ceremony, details to follow.
“I am always so impressed by the ideas and insights of the students who participate in this annual event. Being able to read their essays and posters gives me great hope for the environmental future of Rockland. I thank all of the students, parents, teachers and schools who are working to raise awareness of plastic alternatives and waste reduction,” said County Executive Day.
