Town Board Honors Earth Day T-Shirt Contest
North Hempstead, NY – Town of North Hempstead Supervisor Judi Bosworth and the Town Board are pleased to announce the winner of the Town’s Annual Earth Day T-Shirt contest. The winners were honored before a Town Board Meeting on April 25.
For the past 13 years the Town of North Hempstead has organized the t-shirt design contest in honor of Earth Day. This year, nine school districts from the Town participated in this contest and over 450 students submitted entries with the theme “Clean Water Starts With You.”
This year’s winning design was created by Manhasset High School Freshman Hailey Morris and 4,000 t-shirts have been created with her artwork. These shirts will be distributed throughout the Town at schools and at upcoming community clean-ups that are being organized by Town council members. Twenty-three students were recognized with honorable mention for their designs.
