New York State Senate Youth Leadership Recognition Awards

February is Youth Leadership Month and the New York State Senate is highlighting the occasion by encouraging participation in the Youth Leadership Recognition Awards program, which is designed to recognize the outstanding young students who will become our State’s future leaders.

The program is designed to highlight and congratulate well-rounded students who excel academically and have exhibited leadership through extracurricular or volunteer activities. Current juniors and seniors are eligible to participate. Students must be nominated by a teacher, administrator, counselor or other school faculty member. A student can ask a faculty member to nominate them or a faculty member can initiate the process by recommending a student deserving of special recognition.

Share Your Ideas For A Stronger Economy


New York is facing one of the most significant economic challenges in recent history. That’s why – in partnership with Governor Andrew Cuomo – we took decisive action during this year’s Legislative Session to help revitalize our economy and create new job opportunities here in New York State.

That’s good news – especially in terms of our efforts to create new jobs here right on Long Island.  But more needs to be done.  As we continue to work to strengthen New York’s economy, I would like to find out your opinion on a few key items that will be discussed in the coming months.
