Elementary school students in Addabbo's district get to show what they are thankful for in Thanksgiving Day creative celebration

As the calendar turns to Fall, State Senator Joseph P. Addabbo, Jr. is giving elementary school students in his district the opportunity to express what they are thankful for in the Thanksgiving Day Creative Celebration.

Participating students in Kindergarten through grade 6 will electronically submit — in jpeg or PDF format — an original poem, one-page essay, or artwork expressing what they are thankful for this year to Senator Addabbo’s website. All submissions will be published on Addabbo’s website, and participating students will receive a certificate from the Senator, thanking them for taking part in the celebration.

“As we enter the Thanksgiving season, even as we continue to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic, there are still many things to be thankful for in 2020,” Addabbo said. “This celebration is a great way for children to express through their art what they have experienced this year and what they are thankful for. I look forward to seeing all the submissions and getting to send the students their certificates.”

Submissions can be made at https://www.nysenate.gov/senators/joseph-p-addabbo-jr. Deadline for entries is Monday, November 23, 2020.

If you have any questions about this endeavor, please contact Addabbo’s office at 718-738-1111.
