In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the 1964 World’s Fair and 75th anniversary of the 1939 World’s Fair, the 112th Precinct Community Council announced their partnership with the Forest Hills/Rego Park Times for a student essay contest.

To submit, students from grades 6 through 12 are invited to write a one-page essay on how living in Queens can and should encourage a greater awareness, understanding and respect for one another.

“We are in the world’s borough, the most ethnically diverse borough on the entire planet,” said Queens Borough President Melinda Katz. “It is our asset, it is our strength and the World’s Fair knew that all those generations ago.”

All essays are to be submitted to the 112th Precinct, located at 68-40 Austin St. by Friday, May 30.
