Creative Art Contest for 2020

MARCH 27, 2020

We are looking for students to express what a tree
means and represents to them. Whether it is a favorite tree, a
memory involving a tree, the beauty of a tree, whatever the
passion we want you to show us through art. We have five
different categories to accommodate different ages, whether
solo or a group and lastly three-dimensional art. The only
criteria for the contest is that you are a student and to have
fun. Each category will consist of a first, second and third
place winner. We hope that this challenge inspires our youth
to get involved and show just how amazing Sayreville really is.

Tree City USA

The Tree City USA program, sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation in cooperation with the USDA Forest Service and the National Association of State Foresters, provides direction, technical assistance, public attention, and national recognition for urban and community forestry programs in thousands of towns and cities that more than 135 million Americans call home.

The many benefits of being a Tree City include creating a framework for action, education, a positive public image, and citizen pride.

The award was presented to Sayreville during New Jersey’s 61st Arbor Day Celebration held in Newark on April 30, 2010.
