Reyansh Kulkarni, a fourth grade student at Barnum Woods Elementary School, was recently named the winner in the Hempstead Town Covanta Energy Recycling Poster Contest. The contest encourages students to convey ways people can take better care of the environment through their artwork.
“We really need to take care of the earth,” Reyansh said. “My poster shows the ways we can lift our planet up, like recycling, reusing and reducing waste.”
Reyansh was awarded with a Barnes and Noble Nook for his first-place finish, and his poster will be displayed on Town of Hempstead recycling trucks. Additionally, the school was awarded a $500 gift certificate in recognition of Reyansh’s winning artwork.
