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!

Photographer's Statement:

It’s up to us to protect the small and fragile things in life that may seem insignificant now but will grow to be part of a forest that have the power to bring blue skies in the darkest of times.
