This fall, City students are reminding New Yorkers of the importance of energy conservation, one LinkNYC kiosk at a time.

Thanks to our partners at LinkNYC, 15 winning pieces from the NYC Department of Education’s ninth annual Energy Conservation Artwork Contest are being featured in rotation on LinkNYC kiosks across the five boroughs in celebration of Climate Week NYC (September 14–27, 2020).

The featured works, which are being displayed on over 1,700 kiosks across the City from now until Sunday, October 4, were created by students attending the City’s elementary, middle, and high schools who captured the essence of energy conservation and sustainability in illustrated form. Each piece was selected after taking into consideration its message, artistic originality, and relevance to the topic of energy conservation.

With messages that, for example, celebrate turning trash into compost or shutting off lights when they are not being used, each work features great conservation suggestions that all New Yorkers can take to heart as we work together to build a sustainable future for our city.
