“I think that I shall never see a poem as lovely as a tree.” Joyce Kilmer
Fortunately, no poem is needed for the annual poster contest sponsored by the Cranford Tree Advisory Boards. From April 26th through June 30th, they will be accepting entries from age groups 6 – 8. 9 – 13, and 14 – 18. The “Our Trees Are Terrific “ theme for this year will be A Greener Cranford. Posters need to be completed on 18’ x 24” stock paper, and need to be a unique design and/or slogan. They also need to include the name, age, phone number, and email address of the artist. The posters will remain on display at the Cranford Community Center throughout the summer, and prizes will be awarded in each age category.
The Cranford tree Advisory Board recognizes that trees are an important part of what makes Cranford an attractive community, as they provide clean air, shade, wildlife habitat, beauty and enhance property values. And now that they are again blooming in vivid color after the long months of summer, what better time to acknowledge and point out their importance to our community than by having the kids do so via this poster contest? Not only will it add some precious décor to the Community Center, but it will get the kids thinking and appreciating the precious life around them. And what could be better than that?
