Celebrate Children’s Environmental Health Day by sharing your vision

What does a healthy community look like?

The NYS Children’s Environmental Health Centers are seeking creative people of all ages to share their visions of what a healthy community looks like as we move forward through the COVID-19 era.

Environmental health includes factors relating to clean air, water and food; chemicals in consumer products; healthy homes, schools, workplaces and neighborhoods; as well as energy, transportation and financial networks. Communities of color and communities with less wealth are disproportionally affected by adverse environmental health factors.

How can we make a healthier environment? Create an original work that captures your vision. Select submissions will be posted on NYSCHECK.org, on NYSCHECK social media platforms, and featured at our Children’s Environmental Health Day celebration on October 14, 2021. What’s your vision for healthy places that create healthy people in New York State?


Submissions have been closed for 2021

Eligibility: Public

Your vision may apply to the entire state or to a local community.

Original artworks only, including videos, drawings, paintings, animations, photos, creative writing, music and mixed media. We want ideas and images created by YOU, the visionary. (Avoid using clip art, stock images, music samples, or default application graphics.)
