Arbor Day Poster Contest for Teens
Students in grades 6 through 12 are invited to design a poster celebrating Lake Oswego’s 25th year as a Tree City USA. Posters may depict any aspect of Lake Oswego’s urban forest and should explore what it means to be a Tree City USA. All artistic media (digital, photo, print, etc.) are welcome, so be creative!
Posters must be 11x17” in size and include the following text:
- Lake Oswego
- 25 Years of Tree City USA
- Poster by: (provide your name, school, and grade).
Include your name and phone number legibly on the reverse side of your poster. Entries are due by 5 p.m. on Thursday, April 24 and must be submitted to the Lake Oswego Parks & Recreation Department at the West End Building.
One grand prize entry will be printed and distributed around the city to publicize our 25th Tree City USA anniversary.
