Thanksgiving Essays and Contributions

Dear Participant, 

Thank you for your wonderful contribution to the Thanksgiving Day Creative Celebration. We received outstanding poems, essays, and artwork that exemplify the creativity of New York State’s young people.

I am humbled and honored to see such inspiring contributions in response to what is a deceptively difficult question: “What are you thankful for?”
