Mapleton youth wins Arbor Day tree poster contest

Emma Beach, a fourth-grader at Mapleton Elementary, recently won the Sweepstakes Award for the Utah Arbor Day Tree Poster Contest.

Springville Junior High School drawing teacher Lara Wallace wanted to engage her students in a project through which they could make positive changes in the world with their talent. As a result, through a scratchboard project, SJHS drawing students have created amazing black-and-white textures of endangered species affected by neglect in taking care of the world.

To help with the global water crises, the drawing students are printing amazing images produced through the endangered species project into gift cards and selling them. The proceeds will go to a partner school in Nigeria to help provide clean water. The cards are half-sheet sizes with a fold and envelopes that goes with them. To buy the cards, contact Wallace at lara.wallace@nebo.edu.

Eighth-grade student Katelyn Hollister said, “I had no idea I was decent at scratchboard. I learned that I can find different ways with different mediums to make fur look good. Scratchboard is a way to do that. I think it was a good thing to choose animals for our scratchboard pictures.”

Ninth-grade student Traer Petersen said, “I learned to push what I could do. I didn’t know I could do it that good. The content of my piece is endangered animals. I want to help them, but I don’t know how. Now, I know that we should try not to burn as much fossil fuels and keep pollution out of the air.”

r

“Through research, the students learned that our world’s atmosphere and ocean are warming through the use of fossil fuels, nitrous oxides, deforestation and fertilizers, and pollution acidity in oceans that are releasing sky-rocketing amounts of greenhouse gases. The climate crises is unprecedented in its scale and complexity,” Wallace said.
