Draw a Tree, Win a Contest


Guilty. Guilty. Guilty. That's how the judges of The Jewish Journal's first Tu B'Shevat Art Contest feel about having to pick just three winners out of so many terrific entries.

The Journal was deluged with drawings from children aged 2-13 throughout the region. Competition was stiff, perhaps because the prizes are so special: each winner will receive a live fruit-bearing tree courtesy of TreePeople. TreePeople founder and director Andy Lipkis donated the trees hoping winners would be inspired to continue the organization's mission of greening urban spaces and parklands and educating people about the importance of trees (www.treepeople.org).

The judging took place at The Journal's offices last week. Entries were judged by how well they illustrated this passage: "For we are as trees of the field; this means that our life depends on the trees.

The contest was very close. Thank you to all our contestants -- we look forward to seeing what you come up with next year.
