2014 Arbor Day Contest Now Open
To help educate Californians on the value that trees provide, Cal Fire and California ReLeaf sponsor the annual statewide Arbor Week poster contest for students in 3rd, 4th and 5th grades. Students are asked to create original artwork based on the theme “Trees Make My Community Healthy”. Submissions are due to California ReLeaf by February 14th. Winners will be featured at the State Fair and awarded cash prizes provided by the California Community Forests Foundation. Contest rules, as well as educational materials can be downloaded at arborweek.org/contests. Last year, Jackson Elementary student Maria Estrada won the statewide Arbor Day contest.
