2011 Poster Contest


2011 Arbor Day Poster Contest Winners

The Delaware Department of Agriculture, Forest Service section (DFS) annually sponsors an Arbor Day Poster Contest for Delaware school children in grades K-4. In addition, we administer a National Arbor Day Poster Contest sponsored by the National Arbor Day Foundation for fifth grade students only. Information packets on the Poster contests are mailed to Delaware schools in December/January. The awards are presented in April during the annual Arbor Day Ceremony. In addition, DFS annually distributes free pine seedlings to Delaware elementary school children. These seedlings are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.
