YMCA of Long Island & Stew Leonard III Children’s Charities Announce Water Wise Water Safety Kids Art Contest
Partnership Focuses on Promoting Water Safety Awareness Ahead of Swim Season
The YMCA of Long Island announced today that it has partnered with Stew Leonard III Children’s Charities, Inc. to launch the inaugural Water Wise Water Safety Kids Art Contest to help make children more aware of the importance of water safety. Children age 12 and under are encouraged to use this unique opportunity to express their artistic interpretations of water safety and share their own tips for peers. Both organizations strive to educate and engage local communities about the importance of being a responsible swimmer, and this joint venture is the latest initiative aimed at keeping Long Islanders safe this summer.

The primary responsibility of ensuring the safety of a child lies with the parents. As most parents are already aware, the task of protecting your child is not limited to the boundaries of the home only. It is important that parents make it their duty to examine all the premises that their child will spend a portion of their day at. This encompasses one of the most important locations, the school.
