Gianaris Accepting Entries for Annual Thanksgiving Creative Program

ASTORIA – New York State Senate Deputy Leader Michael Gianaris is once again hosting his annual Thanksgiving-themed creative program, inviting young people from across western Queens to submit a creative depiction showing what they are thankful for this time of year.

“This program provides students an opportunity to reflect on the holiday season and learn to express themselves creatively,” said Senate Deputy Leader Michael Gianaris. “As our community begins to return to normal, this is an important way to reflect and give thanks for that which we have.”

Entries are being accepted on Senator Gianaris’ website (gianaris.nysenate.gov) from students in Kindergarten through Sixth grade. Students are encouraged to submit works of art, poems, and short stories. Entries are due by November 22.
