 2022 NFW art contest winners

Planting trees and preserving habitat were among the more common themes depicted by participants in the 2022 #NationalForestWeek children’s art contest.

But the most prominent was protecting forests from wildfires.


The contest results were inspiring and showed great attention to detail, as evidenced by the winners and runners-up in each of the three age categories.


Thank you to all who took the time to create and enter a submission, and for taking an interest in forestry.


Congratulations to our winners.
