Luke Etter, a fifth grade student at Spring Garden Elementary School, was awarded first place in the Maryland Department of Natural Resources annual fifth-grade Arbor Day poster contest.

 The theme for this year’s contest was “Trees are Terrific ... and Forest Products are Too!” Students could use varying techniques, and entries were judged remotely this year. Luke’s poster featured food products such as fruit, chocolate, coconuts, and maple syrup, as well as wood products including lumber and corks.

Luke and his school will be rewarded with the planting of 15 trees at his school this spring.
