It’s time once again for the Senator Jack Martins Thanksgiving Essay Contest, open to all sixth-grade students who reside in the 7th Senate District.
As has been the tradition, students are being asked to write an essay titled, “What Are You Most Thankful For?” Last year, many of the essays focused on students being thankful that their families were safe after Hurricane Sandy.
Each participant will receive a certificate of accomplishment. One essay will then be chosen from each of the participating schools for its creativity, thoughtfulness and overall message. The author and his or her family will be invited to a special reception during which the student can share the essay with other attendees.
Submissions can be made electronically by visiting martins.nysenate.gov and clicking the Thanksgiving Essay button on the upper left or downloading an entry form from the site by clicking on the large banner in the middle and mailing your essay to Senator Jack M. Martins District Office, 151 Herricks Road, Suite 202, Garden City Park, NY 11040.
Submissions will accepted until Nov. 20.
