In honor of Earth Day's 40th anniversary, our April issue is full of ways to make the annual holiday actually mean something
this year—from changing the way you shop to sitting down to family dinner. We're also teaming up with PENCIL
to sponsor a truly awesome Earth Day poster contest for New York City school kids.

We have a particular fondness for Earth Day Posters because Martha Stewart Living
food editor Sarah Carey’s father created the first “Earth Week” poster in 1970. We’re thrilled to continue the tradition with a new generation of artists as well as to cultivate a whole new generation of planet protectors.
Throughout the month of March, students from participating schools received poster board, with which they created original posters to promote the holiday. Each school chose one winning poster from each grade level (1st through 5th) to compete in the “finals” here at the Martha Stewart offices.
On Thursday, judges Martha Stewart, Adrian Benepe, Lisa Belzberg, and Martin Carey will select the winners. We’ve got some great prizes in store, and the first place artist will get a tree planted in his or her name!
