City Sponsors Arbor Day Poster Contest

Colorful poster with fall trees promoting the annual Arbor Day Poster Contest sponsored by the City

Since 1872, Arbor Day has been celebrated throughout the United States and schools have played an important role. Educators help children discover the social, environmental and economic benefits of trees in cities and towns. Lessons often encourage students to identify and plant trees in their own communities.

The City of McPherson supports continued efforts to educate children about community trees. In preparation for Arbor Day 2020, all fifth grade students attending school in the City of McPherson are invited to participate in the McPherson Arbor Day Poster Contest. Contest instructions and rules are available at http://mcpcity.com/510/Arbor-Day-Poster-Contest.

All entries must be original artwork and must address the theme “We All Need Kansas Trees for Resilient Ecosystems!” Posters should be submitted to the McPherson Convention & Visitors Bureau, 1111 E. Kansas, no later than 5:00 p.m. on Friday, January 10, 2020.

The contest winner will receive a $25 ChamberCheck, recognition at the April 20, 2020, City Commission meeting and entry into the State of Kansas Arbor Day Poster Contest. The winning poster will also be framed and displayed at the municipal building along with past winners.
