2013 Arbor Day Poster Contest Begins
You are invited to join the 2013 Indiana Arbor Day Poster Contest. This year's contest, "Trees are Terrific and Energy Wise," includes classroom activities designed to increase understanding of the importance of trees in our communities and the ways that they contribute to reducing energy consumption. You can find exact correlations to the revised Indiana Academic Standards (2010) for Science and Fine Arts listed for each activity so that you are not only meeting your requirements as a teacher in Indiana, but are utilizing activities and lesson plans that are fun and proven. The deadline for submissions Friday, April 12.
The use of part or all of the activities in the guide is encouraged, but not mandatory, for participation in the contest.
The SUSI fact sheets are the results of a cooperative project between the Indiana Department of Natural Resources Community and Urban Forestry program and Indiana Urban Forest Council funded by a grant from the US Forest Service.
