Congratulations to all the New Castle students who submitted entries to the New Castle Sustainability Advisory Board (NCSAB)’s Reusable Bag Art Contest! Through their artwork they have shown a commitment to reducing litter, protecting wildlife and conserving natural resources. The Contest was held at the end of the prior school year and our winners were selected in June. To see all entries to the Contest click here
After much deliberation over many talented and creative entries, we are pleased to announce that Kenneth Nohavicka and Casey Davidson are our winners! Bags featuring their artwork are being sponsored by Ted Holmes of Douglas Elliman, and will be handed out at Community Day on Saturday, September 20th. Please join us on Community Day at 1:00 pm near the Chappaqua Train Station where Steve Wolk, chair of the New Castle Sustainability Advisory Board, will officially recognize Kenny and Casey for their excellent work and thank Ted for his donation.
The Reusable Bag Art Contest is part of the NCSAB’s Reusable Bag Initiative. Other entries may be featured on posters around New Castle as part of the NCSAB’s education and outreach campaign to inform residents about the Reusable Bag Initiative. This Initiative is designed to encourage residents to increase their use of multi-use, reusable carryout bags, and to limit the number of single-use bags used when shopping. Use of reusable bags shows a commitment to sustainability and will help preserve our environment for our children and future generations.
We hope you will pick up a FREE reusable bag at Community Day and enjoy using it around town!
