Schools Tree Day 2015 Winners Announced
Author: Marty Middlebrook
A huge congratulations to the Schools Tree Day Competition winners for 2015!
This year we asked for tree-mendous nature based art and craft ideas to inspire kids and teachers. We're happy to say we were swamped with amazing suggestions of how to combine imagination with leaves, rocks and sticks to make wonderful artwork.
All the entries showed the inspirational power of contact with nature. The entries were judged on a combination of creativity, photo quality, clear instructions and use of natural materials. It was too much of a challenge to narrow it down to the top ten, so we included sixteen winners, and there were many more we wish we could have included.
