Six Nassau County student winners of the 2013 New York Humane Society Essay Contest were honored in a ceremony at the Theodore Roosevelt Executive and Legislative Building in Mineola. Linda Mangano presented the students with citations on behalf of County Executive Edward Mangano.
This year marks the 10th year that the county has co-sponsored this event with the Humane Society of New York as part of “Be Kind to Animals Week.” The essay theme for 2013 was, “If I could wave a magic wand, what would I do to make this world better for animals?”
Winners received a tote bag and a Barnes and Noble gift certificate from the Humane Society, and a gift basket from the North Shore Animal League.
