Writing Contest Added to Go Green Youth Challenge
The Michigan Arbor Day Alliance’s Go Green Youth Challenge engages Michigan youth in environmental stewardship, community development and service-learning through a statewide effort to plant trees in Michigan. Children, pre-K through 12th grade, are challenged to collect coins, as an individual, classroom or club. All money collected directly funds community tree plantings across Michigan. This year, the Go Green Youth Challenge runs from January 14 until April 1, 2013.
The program has also added a Creative Writing contest for 2013. This contest runs alongside the coin collection. K-12 students are urged to use their imagination to submit a creative writing piece and tell us “What Do Trees Mean to You?” Prizes are available for both contests. Program details and rules can be found on our website at www.miarbordayalliance.com. If you have any questions, please contact Jennifer Hunnell at [email protected] or call (517) 543-5848 ext.5.
