#ThrowBackThursday: Arbor Day Slogans

by Cindy Pantea

Another school year has ended and our Arbor Day contest is complete. Check out our  updated our Arbor Day website page with the winning schools and pictures of the tree planting ceremonies, if you didn’t catch it in our newsletter. (Not a newsletter subscriber?

Today, though, we thought we would do a little #ThrowBackThursday blog since we are headed into the warmer weather, so that you can think about the importance of trees and their natural beauty to our health and happiness, while you have fun in the sun.

For a little help, here are all the wonderful slogans from participating Akron fourth grade classrooms for this year’s Arbor Day slogan contest, which was to express how important healthy air is, which comes from trees.
