Michigan K-12 grade students were encouraged to express their creativity about trees this spring in a creative writing contest as part of the Go Green Youth Challenge. They were asked "What do Trees Mean to You?" In the first year of this contest, we had an amazing 479 entries from throughout the state and had some amazing entries. You can read the stories, letters, and poems of the winners online: http://www.miarbordayalliance.com/creative-writing-contest.html The Michigan Arbor Day Alliance is a program of the Eaton Conservation District.
