The DEC’s Arbor Day celebration recognized the artwork of DEC’s children’s poster contest winner, Maheen Naqvi, 5th Grader from Dutch Lane Elementary School, Hicksville, Nassau County. The theme of this year’s children’s artwork was “New York’s Un-Fir-Gettable Forests.” Over 2,000 students participated in the poster contest event from schools across the state this year. Being chosen from among so many participants is a significant achievement! Congratulations to Maheen and family. You can see some past winning posters here.
