The Arbor DayArt Contest is a traditional part of Edmond’s Arbor Week
Celebration, in whichEdmond fifth-grade students create artwork
surrounding their interpretation of the them "Trees In Our Town". In
2011, the Arbor Day Art Show was established to showcase multipleworks
from each school, displaying varying interpretations of trees by
Edmond’s youth, now taking place at the Edmond Historical Society &
Museum. Not only does the Arbor Day ArtContest serve as a fun annual
event, but it also opens up dialogue and consideration about the vast
benefits of trees among the future caretakers of the Edmond environment.
