2014 California Arbor Week Poster Contest Announced
Sacramento, CA – Trees are an essential part of California's climate and are vital to improving air quality and conserving water. To help educate Californians on the value that trees provide to building successful, healthy cities and neighborhoods, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) and California ReLeaf are announcing 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 14, 2014. Winners will be featured at the State Fair and awarded cash prizes provided by the California Community Forests Foundation.
CAL FIRE and California ReLeaf are partnering to encourage cities, nature groups, schools, and youth organizations to celebrate California Arbor Week by planting trees in their communities. California ReLeaf is an alliance of community-based groups, individuals, businesses, and government agencies working to protect the environment by planting and caring for trees and the state's urban and community forests.
