Emma Beach, a fourth-grader at Mapleton Elementary, recently won the Sweepstakes Award for the Utah Arbor Day Tree Poster Contest.
The theme was “Trees are Terrific No Matter Where You Live.”
Emma’s artwork and award meant that she got to choose a tree to be planted at Mapleton Elementary. She chose an Autumn Blaze Maple, and you can see it in the front of the school. Emma and her family were even able to help plant the tree.
