Savannah's Amazing Trees

To celebrate Arbor Day 2022, the Savannah Park and Tree Commission held the SAVANNAH ARBOR DAY ART & ESSAY CONTEST, open to Savannah students in grades K-12. Students were encouraged to submit an original piece of writing or art relating to the theme "Savannah's Amazing Trees!" that expressed their interpretation of what they love about Savannah's trees - whether it was just one tree, one type of tree, or all of our trees. The following exhibit gallery showcases the winners in both the Artwork and Literary Work categories.
