ForedBC — For education about our resources and environment

See on Scoop.itHCS Learning Commons Newsletter
September 2013 – BC communities are once again celebrating National Forest Week, whose theme this year is “Forestry Careers”. To honour the almost century-old National Forest Week tradition, September 22-28, 2013, FORED BC is again offering a provincial poster contest for students. One winning poster from each of the three categories of primary, intermediate and secondary will collect a $50 prize from FORED BC. If a winning poster is submitted by a group, the group will share the prize. Deadline for poster submission to FORED BC is October 31, 2013.  Posters should be on 11”x17” paper and reflect the theme for this year, Forestry Careers, which highlights the importance of forestry workers and the value in choosing forestry as a career.  The forest industry helped to shape Canada’s history and it provides employment opportunities for anyone who wants to make a good living and have a positive impact on the environment. Future forestry leaders can live their dream of working where their passion lies – in the woods!  Forests are crucial to the ecological, economic and social health of communities across Canada. Any type of artistic medium may be used, i.e. pencil, crayon, paint, mural, collage, etc.  Computer-designed posters may be submitted electronically<> as an attachment in high resolution .jpg format.  Students must note their name, grade, school, and school address, phone and email address on the back of all posters or in covering emails.  Poster entries must be postmarked by October 31, 2013. All posters become the property of FORED BC.  Due to the large volume of entries received, FORED cannot return posters.  Only winners will be notified.  By participating in this contest, winners agree that their names and posters can be published in local media.  Previous award winning posters can be viewed at<>. FORED BC, short for FOR EDucation About our Environment and its Natural Resources, is a charitable organization established in 1925.  We work with aligned groups and volunteers such as the Spirit Bear Youth Coalition, the Aboriginal Institute for Management Excellence, and the Ministry of Forests on community-based sustainability projects. This event began in the 1920s to prevent forest fires and now raises national awareness of sustainable forest management for present and future needs. For additional info, please email<> or fax 604-737-8598.
