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

The Forest Ballroom

Photographer's Statement:

The wind makes the trees dance, and the classical bird band begins to play. Something quite elegant, wouldn’t you say? But what most who wander through this ballroom don’t know, is that this is a place where wild loves to roam. Everything and everyone is wild, yet it brings you a sense of calm. Oh, don’t you know that this world is in reach of your palms?
