All Our Energy, in association with Sierra Club Long Island Group, are proud to announce the winner, Kelsey Kresge of Hofstra University and the runners-up of our inaugural Fall 2016 Long Island College Student Poster Design / Art Contest.

Art submissions came from students attending colleges across Nassau and Suffolk. With the local environmental world abuzz about upcoming off shore wind farms and other renewable energy projects, it is an exciting time for Long Island’s environmental future. We decided it was time to bring art into our world, and bring that excitement to life with work from local artists.

Students were offered a $300 prize and received leeway to create their most original and inspiring artwork and concepts, in hopes of generating new ideas, and they did not disappoint.

We are grateful to all the entrants who shared their ideas and creativity with us to help inspire Long Island to embrace a clean energy future. We thank our winner, our runners up, our judges and our partners at Sierra Club Long Island Group who all helped this first contest succeed.
