Arbor Day is a day to plant, nurture and appreciate trees and the difference they make in our lives. To help us spread the word about Arbor Day, we invite Vermont students in grades 1-8 to participate in the celebration by creating a piece of tree art and sharing a tree story.
The Growing Works of Art Contest is hosted in partnership with UVM Extension and the Vermont Department of Forests, Parks, & Recreation.
Celebrate the connections we share with trees by helping your students and children create a work of art that showcases fond memories enjoyed because of the trees in our lives. The 2020 Growing Works of Art contest theme is “Trees are superheroes: share your tree story of why we need trees.”
Contest Deadline: March 13, 2020
One winner will be selected from each grade (1-8) and receive:
Artwork and stories featured online
A Vermont State Parks punch pass ($30 value)
Featured on WCAX’s “Across the Fence” television show
