CARSON CITY, Nev. — Nevada’s fifth grade students are being sought to showcase their artistic talents by creating posters for the National Arbor Day Foundation’s annual Arbor Day Poster Contest, “Trees are Terrific…in Cities and Towns!”
The activities teach fifth grade students about the important roles urban trees play in their community and meet national and state education standards in science, social studies, math and art.
One poster entry will be selected by Nevada Division of Forestry to represent Nevada in the National Contest. Prizes will be awarded to teachers submitting their school’s winning poster. The deadline for poster entries is Monday March 9, 2009.
Guidelines and a free activity guide are available here or by calling Susan Stead at 775-684-2506.
The last 13 years of Nevada’s winning posters are located here.
