Byhalia student wins Arbor Day poster contest
Julian Saulsberry, a fifth grade student from Byhalia Middle School in Byhalia, won first place in the statewide Arbor Day Poster Contest. Julian competed with 1,116 students from 67 schools across the state of Mississippi.
Julian’s teacher, Cynthia Chitwood, also won a first place prize for the winning poster.
Each year the Mississippi Urban Forest Council and the Mississippi Forestry Commission hosts the annual Arbor Day Poster Contest among fifth grade students statewide. The contest has been a forestry tradition for over 20 years.
This year the competition received a record number of entries and the theme of the poster contest for 2011 was the International Year of the Forest, a global platform to celebrate people’s action to sustainably manage the world’s forests.
“The annual poster contest provides students and teachers an opportunity to learn more about forests and the benefits that trees and forests bring to our lives and communities, as well as, learning about stewardship.” said Donna Yowell, executive director of the Mississippi Urban Forest Council.
Sponsors of the 2011 competition include the Mississippi Forestry Commission, the Mississippi Urban Forest Council, the USDA Forest Service, the Southern Group of State Foresters and Four County Electric. Students and teachers participating in the annual competition have a chance to win over $1000 in cash prizes for winning poster entries.
