You gave us your best shot!

To celebrate Arbor Day, each year the Idaho Forest Products Commission sponsors the Look to the Forest Photo Contest. Idaho 5th-12th grade students from throughout the state submitted their photos, captions and photographers’ statements. First place winners and honorable mentions were named in four grade level divisions: 5-6th, 7-8th, 9-10th and 11-12th.

Here are this year’s winners!

Cracks in Time

Photographer's Statement:

When I look to the forest I don’t just see the trees, but rather the cracks and scars each tree has. Rather than a deformity, I see these as symbols of the strength and longevity of Mother Nature both against itself and other people.
