Coeur d'Alene HS student draws winning Arbor Day button | Arts & Culture
The winning artwork for this year’s Arbor Day button comes from Marina Thaxton, a junior at Coeur d’Alene High School. Her design will be printed on buttons to be given out at local Arbor Day events.
The local Arbor Day Committee received over 100 pieces of art submitted from middle and high school students in Coeur d’Alene, Post Falls and Lakeland school districts.
Thaxton will also receive a check for $75, a t-shirt with her artwork printed on it and a supply of buttons to give her friends and family.
Arbor Day is scheduled for April 27th this year in Idaho. Tree seedlings will be given to 1,800 4th graders in Kootenai County next week. The buttons and seedling are paid for by donations from local forest product companies, nurseries and tree services.
