The contest deadline is March 27.

The annual contest educates children about the importance of trees and the benefits they provide us in our daily lives.

All Wyoming fourth- and fifth-grade students and home-schooled students are invited to participate. Posters are not judged by grade level.

The student who wins the state contest will receive $100, a plaque and a framed copy of their winning poster while their teacher will receive $100 to buy classroom materials. The second place artist will get $50 and a framed copy of their poster.

The contest is sponsored by Wyoming State Forestry Division and Wyoming Project Learning Tree.
