Colorado Tree Coalition (CTC) Poster Contest Winners!!


5th Grade Poster Contest
On Behalf of the Tree City Planning committee and the Town of Keenesburg, we would like to thank the 5th Grade classes of Cardinal Community Academy and Hoff Elementary for their participation in the Colorado Tree Coalition (CTC) Poster Contest.  We also want to thank all of those who participated as judges, it was a very difficult task.  Each year, the CTC takes the top winners in their local contest to compete in the statewide contest. 

This is the first step in the Town’s Community Celebration and our Tree City USA designation.  There was a total of 61 posters entered into the Town’s local contest.  The posters were amazing, well thought out, and creative.  The kids followed specific rules as set forth by the CTC contest, one being incorporating the theme of Celebrating Trees in Our Community.
Posters were displayed in the conference room at the Town Hall and names were covered with numbers so that the judges did not know who the poster belonged to.

Trees will be planted at the school of the winning poster contest winners and winning school.  Posters are on display at the Town Hall and all posters will be on display at the Tree City USA Community Event on May 7, 2022.

School Award goes to Cardinal Community Academy. The school award was given for overall creativity in entries.

The top winner’s poster has been delivered to the CTC Statewide contest.  Please help us on congratulating the following:
