Arbor Day Art Contest

While the Arbor Day Art Contest (formerly Arbor Day Poster Contest) has been a traditional element of Edmond Arbor Week events for several years, 2015 marks the fifth year for the Arbor Day Art Show! This event showcases the artwork of fifth grade students from each participating school surrounding the theme “Trees in Our Town”. In 2015, private schools and home school students in Edmond were also invited to submit entries for the first time. (If you would like to get your school involved next year, check out the program information for the Arbor Day Art Contest.)
The Edmond Historical Society & Museum (431 S Boulevard) is once again serving as the venue for the Arbor Day Art Show, which is still on exhibit, until Saturday, April 25th! This year’s exhibition includes first through third place and an honorable mention from each school. Frame Master Gallery has continued to provide beautiful framing for the first place works, and Citizens Bank of Edmond also continued to sponsor $25 gift cards for first place students. A reception for participating students and their families was held during Arbor Week, where all students received additional prizes.

Congratulations to the Arbor Day Art Show participants! Please see below for students’ names and more photos from Arbor Day Art Show events. (Photos were taken by Crooked Glass Studios). Be sure to stop by the Edmond Historical Society & Museum by April 25th to see the Arbor Day Art Show and enter a drawing to win a free tree!
