Arbor Day Poster Contest
Diamond Bar students are invited to showcase their creativity and celebrate the importance of trees by taking part in the City’s 2024 Arbor Day Poster Contest.
Organized in observance of Arbor Day, the nation’s oldest environmental holiday, the contest aims to increase the community’s understanding and appreciation of trees and the environmental benefits they provide. The contest is open to Diamond Bar students in grades 4-7 in all public and nonpublic schools (private, charter, parochial and home schools).
Contest artwork must be created by hand on standard 8 ½” x 11” paper and illustrate a message that communicates this year’s contest theme – “Nature’s Climate Champion”. Art can be in color or black and white, and created with crayon, colored pencil, marker, watercolor or any other art medium. Glue, stickers, and glitter are not allowed.
Entries from fourth and fifth graders will be judged separately from those from sixth and seventh graders, and first, second and third place winners from each group will be selected. Judging will be based on creativity, style, and how well they reflect the contest theme.
Winners will have their artwork displayed at the City’s Earth Day celebration taking place Saturday, April 20 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the AQMD parking lot,
21865 Copley Drive.
Submissions are due no later than Friday, March 29, and may be dropped off at, or mailed to, Diamond Bar City Hall located at 21810 Copley Drive. Complete contest rules and the entry form are available at www.diamondbarca.gov/specialevents.
