COLLEGE STATION,-- Fourth- and fifth-grade teachers tasked with educating their students about trees and the benefits they provide have a tool to help liven up their lessons -- the 2011 Texas Arbor Day Poster Contest.

A diverse community forest is a healthy community forest, and that’s just the point that the state poster contest is focusing on this year.

Sponsored by the Texas Forest Service and open this year to both fourth- and fifth-grade students, the contest carries the theme “Trees are Terrific in all Shapes and Sizes!” It’s designed to boost students’ environmental stewardship by having them create a community complete with not just trees but the right trees planted in the right places.

Posters may be no longer than 11 inches by 17 inches. The deadline for each school to submit its winning poster is Friday, March 25.

The winning student will receive a $500 savings bond and a yearlong family pass for Texas state parks, as well as a framed copy of his or her poster and an invitation to the Texas Arbor Day ceremony in Pearland on April 29.

The winning teacher will receive a personal iPad and $250 to go toward classroom supplies.

The winning school will receive $250 for environmental books or supplies and a tree planted on the campus as part of an Arbor Day celebration.

For more information, contact Pete Smith at postercontest@tfs.tamu.edu or visit http://tamus.pr-optout.com/Url.aspx? 513992x1088404x378196 .
