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!

All Winners | Winners 5-6 | Winners 7-8 | Winners 9-10 | Winners 11-12

Photographer's Statement:

I named the photo this because the flowers that are beginning to bloom have a rose color at that stage. I took this in complete sunlight to get the elements of the shiny red bloom. I wanted this to be my number one because the redness gives me a good image of a red apple that was just picked on a warm spring day.
