Oregon Tree City of the Year

A record breaking 185 entries were received during April in the 2018 Oregon Tree City of the Year themed Arbor Day Art Contest for kindergarten through 8th grade Lake Oswego Students. Entries could be created using any medium with art inspired by the City’s award from the Oregon Department of Forestry. Each entry was mounted onto a festive frame and judged on creativity and overall design based on the theme. Seven winners in three grade divisions were announced on May 19, 2018 at opening day of the Farmers’ Market where prizes were awarded by Mayor Studebaker. Each winner received their art in a frame, a native tree seedling, and a prize pack full of fun items to explore the urban forest. The three first place winners also received a Family Four Pack Pass to the World Forestry Center Discovery Museum!

Entries are on display at Lake Oswego Parks and Recreation, 1500 Greentree Road through May 29, 2018, except for the prize winners who took their framed art home. Starting June 5, 2018, parents can claim their child’s art from the third-floor receptionist’s desk at City Hall, 380 A Avenue, left off the elevator.
