Gianaris Launches Annual Thanksgiving Creative Celebration, Deadline Nov. 18

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 their creative stories, poems, and artworks. This year’s theme is: ‘What qualities do you have for which you are thankful?’

“This program provides students an opportunity to reflect on the holiday season and learn to express themselves creatively,” said Gianaris, who added, “this is an important way for our young people to reflect and give thanks for what 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 18.
