For the fourth year, the NYC DOE Sustainability Initiative hosted an artwork contest! Students created poster art with a CALL TO ACTION for sustainability initiatives within DOE schools. The contest was open to all NYC DOE schools (including charters) from all grade levels (K-12).
Nine pieces of original art were selected that best illustrate how the school community can take action to be more sustainable. Over 350 students from all five boroughs and all grade levels submitted artwork. The winners are grouped by age level; 3 Elementary, 3 Middle School, and 3 High School. Prizes will be awarded to all 9 winners at an award ceremony close to Earth Day in April. 15 additional students received honorable mention. Three sets of grade-level posters will be produced and be available for schools to order for FREE later in the year (limited quantities).
