We are excited to invite Arizona youth in grades K-12 to participate in our “Towns Grow with Trees” poster contest! This year’s contest is intended to increase the understanding of the relationship between trees and the communities and towns where we play, live and grow. Trees are all around us; they are in our forests, communities, parks, schoolyards and backyards. Although they may appear to only sway in the breeze, trees are always quietly working to provide us with environmental, economic, health, and social benefits. From shade to carbon sequestration and from animal homes to lumber, the benefits abound! Please help us demonstrate how towns grow with trees through your unique and beautiful artwork! Poster artwork will be on display at the State Capitol Museum Rotunda from April 18-29. Prizes will be mailed to award winners.
