First Place Winner by Kyra K.
The 2015 Wyoming Arbor Day Poster Contest was held this winter with the theme of "Celebrating Wyoming's TREE-mendous Future." Over three hundred talented fourth and fifth grade students participated state-wide.
Today, on Earth Day it seems appropriate to announce our winners! Kyra K. from Alcova Elementary School is the first-place winner. She had an information-packed poster that really impressed the judges! She will receive her framed poster, a plaque and $100 at the State Arbor Day Celebration in Cheyenne on April 27. Her teacher Hazel Scharosch will also receive $100 for the purchase of additional teaching supplies. Congratulations, Kyra and Hazel!
Our runner-up was Bethany H. of Medicine Bow Elementary School. Bethany also had a great poster for which she will receive her framed poster, a plaque and $50. She will be presented her award at the Medicine Bow Arbor Day Celebration on April 24. Congratulations, Bethany!
Thank you to all the teachers who took the time to have their students compete in the competition. And special thanks to Wyoming State Forestry Division for sponsorship of the contest.
