The Michigan Arbor Day Alliance is happy to announce the 5th Grade Poster Contest! This 2018-2019 school year, Michigan 5th grade students are invited to use their best drawing, coloring, and painting skills, along with their imagination and creativity to submit a poster demonstrating the theme: Trees for Bees.

Students are encouraged to use their imagination to create an original poster featuring the theme. First, second, and third place winners will be chosen by popular vote. Prizes will include a gift certificate for the winning student, a tree planting for the school or community, and a gift card for the participating teacher to help purchase classroom supplies. The first-place winner will also be invited to be recognized at the State Arbor Day Celebration in Lansing.

Trees are great teaching tools. Teachers can include this contest into lesson plans by talking about native trees that bees utilize for nesting and food. Classroom activities and lesson plans can be found on MADA’s website at www.miarbordayalliance.org

All entries must be received by mail by March 4, 2018.
