The Town of Purcellville’s Tree and Environment Sustainability Committee and the Purcellville Arts Council are pleased to announce the Wonder of Trees Poster Contest for students. The goals are to engage students in learning about the benefits of planting trees and to help increase awareness within the community by featuring the winning posters at Purcellville Town Hall. Submissions for the contest are to show how planting trees helps the environment, which may include: cleaning the air, trapping carbon, cleaning water, providing food and shelter for wildlife, or helping people (food, resources, shade, health benefits).
The Wonder of Trees Poster Contest was open to any current student in the Purcellville area, including students at all schools that feed into Woodgrove High School and Loudoun Valley High School (Banneker Elementary, Emerick Elementary, Hamilton Elementary, Hillsboro Charter Academy, Kenneth W. Culbert Elementary, Lovettsville Elementary, Middleburg Charter School, Mountain View Elementary, Round Hill Elementary, Waterford Elementary, Blue Ridge Middle, Harmony Middle, Woodgrove High School, Loudoun Valley High School) as well as homeschooled children. The deadline for submissions was 5 p.m. EST on Friday, January 31, 2020.
See a video of all submissions, which was published on the Purcellville Parks and Recreation Facebook page on Arbor Day, 2020.
