Our Writing Contest Has Been Extended!

The Michigan Arbor Day Alliance has extended the deadline of their Go Green Youth Challenge Creative Writing Contest! So there is still time if you have a Michigan K-12 student who enjoys writing about nature.


IF TREES COULD TALK… Writing Contest Deadline Approaches


The Go Green Youth Challenge (GGYC) Creative Writing Contest seeks to engage students by getting them to explore their imaginations. K-12 students are eligible to submit a short creative writing piece of any type to express what they think it would be like “If Trees Could Talk.” There are three age categories and first, second, and third place prizes will be awarded for each. Entries must be postmarked by March 10.

In addition to the writing contest, the GGYC features a fundraiser challenge. The GGYC fundraiser challenges students to raise money to plant trees in Michigan. The individual, classroom or club who raises the most will win a tree planting of their own, an invitation to the State Arbor Day Celebration in Lansing, and other assorted prizes. All money raised will go directly toward funding community tree plantings and statewide outreach efforts. Entries must be submitted by March 31.

The GGYC celebrates all that trees give us by engaging Michigan’s youth in community development and service-learning through a friendly statewide competition. Details, rules, and entry forms on both of these contests can be found at www.miarbordayalliance.com. If you have any questions please email  miarborday@gmail.com or call (517) 543-5848 ext.5.
