NYS Launches "Greenest New Yorker" Contest

I LOVE NEW YORK, (, New York State’s tourism promotion agency, and are looking for people who are doing their part to keep the Empire State green with the first-ever contest to find “The Greenest New Yorker.”

Entries for the “Greenest New Yorker” contest will be judged by a panel of celebrity New Yorkers.  The Grand Prize winner will be announced on Earth Day, Thursday, April 22, at a special press conference held by I LOVE NEW YORK. The winner will receive an I LOVE NEW YORK Green Getaway, which includes a three-day, two-night getaway package for two people to one of New York’s Top Ten Green Destinations.

To apply, contestants can log onto, and tell I LOVE NEW YORK why they deserve the title of “Greenest New Yorker.” To be considered, New York State residents will need to illustrate a commitment to and leadership in protecting the environment while utilizing its natural resources.
