Children asked to celebrate forest week with art

Children are asked to share their artistic vision to celebrate National Forest Week.

Kids are invited to celebrate National Forest Week through artistic expression.

Children aged four to 12 can enter a national art competition, which runs until Oct. 19, to celebrate Canada’s forests. Parents can submit their child’s artwork as well and teachers can enter the work of their entire classroom. The competition is hosted by the Association of B.C. Forest Professionals and the Truck Loggers Association.

Competition participants are asked tp draw a picture of what forests mean to them. There will be three winners from each age group (four to five year olds, six to eight year olds and nine to 12 year olds). The winners will receive a $50 gift certificate to Chapters and have their pictures published in both associations’ magazines and posted on the two organization’s websites.
