The contest is open to all Dumont residents, for their "creative tributes to trees," in artwork, poetry, and photography or video categories. Group projects are also welcome. Winners will receive ribbons, and their art will be displayed at the Dixon Homestead Library.

Folks can turn in their entries at the library, and students can also turn theirs in at school. View the full contest flyer, which includes entry specifications, here. You'll need to print and complete the entry form at the bottom, and attach it to the back of your entry.

The Arbor Day celebration will be on Saturday, April 30, at 1 p.m. at the Arboretum Walkway, on West Shore Avenue. All artists will be recognized and the group will plant its Arbor Day tree.
