Willow's Arbor Day Poster - CM School of Fine Arts - Art Classes
Willow A. places FIRST in Clifton Park
Arbor Day Poster Contest!
Clifton Park was designated as a "Tree City USA" by the National Arbor Day Foundation in recognition to the towns commitment to being an important part of our ecosystem.
To be certified as a Tree City USA, communities must:
Create and maintain a tree board or department.
Formally adopt a community tree ordinance.
Spend at least $2 per capita on urban forestry.
Hold an Arbor Day celebration each year.
In honor of Arbor Day and the town's commitment to our ecosystem, the town of Clifton Park held an "Arbor Day Poster Contest" to help raise awareness for our trees and our ecosystem in the local community. This year's winning participant was none other than one of our beloved art students, Willow! 8-year old Willow started this poster idea at home, and brought it to her art teacher here at CM School of Fine Arts to help her bring it to life. With hard work and creative guidance from her teacher, she won first place and we are so proud of her!
Willow will be recognized by the town for her outstanding accomplishment at their next board meeting where she will be awarded her prize. You can also check out her poster in the town hall for the rest of this week!
Thank you for your teaching, Miss Lydia, and a great big congratulations to Willow! You truly deserve it!
