The City of Brighton is pleased to announce the winner of the City’s 2022 Arbor Day Fifth Grade Poster Contest, Layla Korb of Ms. Frazier’s class at Bromley East Charter School. The annual contest gives students the opportunity to show their creativity to raise awareness of trees and the important role they play in the environment.
“Thank you to all the fifth graders who participated in the contest,” said Kyle Sylvester, Assistant Director of Parks and Open Space. “After much deliberation, it was decided that Layla’s artwork really encapsulated the essence of this year’s theme, ‘Celebrating Trees In Our Community.’”
The City’s second place prize went to Bryant Rubio of Ms. Forgette’s class at Padilla Elementary. Both first and second place posters will be on display at the Library at Denver Botanical Gardens. As part of the statewide contest, both Korb’s and Rubio’s designs were submitted to the state poster competition.
As part of her prize, Korb will be recognized as the contest winner at the April 19 City Council meeting. In addition, Korb’s class will participate in a tree planting and dedication on April 22 at Bromley East Charter School. The city-wide contest includes several other prizes, including trees for second and third place student winners, a tree for the teacher of the winning student and a seedling tree for all students of the winning class.
The winners were selected by Brighton's Park Advisory Board.
