Celebrate National Forest Week with art and win

Association of BC Forest Professionals (ABCFP) and the Truck Loggers Association (TLA) are holding an art competition to Oct. 19

VANCOUVER – The Association of BC Forest Professionals (ABCFP) and the Truck Loggers Association (TLA) are holding an art competition from Sept. 18 to Oct. 19, 2012 to celebrate National Forest Week. The art competition is open to kids aged four to 12 _ parents can submit their own kids’ artwork or teachers can enter the work of the whole classroom.

Kids from across the province are invited to draw a picture of what the forests in their communities mean to them. There will be three winners _ one from each age group. Winners will receive a $50 gift certificate to Chapters and will have their pictures published in the ABCFP and TLA magazines and posted on the websites of both organizations.

“BC’s forests have been in the news a lot this year,” says Steve Lorimer, RPF, president of the ABCFP. “We’ve heard from politicians, specialists and researchers but now we want to hear from kids!”

“Children are our most important asset and forests are our most important resource in BC,” says Dwight Yochim, RPF, executive director of the TLA. “Learning what kids see in the forests is an important exercise and one we enjoy doing every year.”

Pick up your pencil crayons and visit the ABCFP or the TLA websites to download the art competition entry form, www.abcfp.ca or www.tla.ca.

The Association of BC Forest Professionals, established in 1947, is the largest professional forestry association in Canada with more than 5,400 members. The association registers and regulates professional foresters and forest technologists under authority of the provincial Foresters Act.

 

The TLA (Truck Loggers Association) represents over 400 independent coastal forest contractors and their suppliers in British Columbia.
