Midvalley Elementary School has a budding Picasso in its midst.
Thanks to his drawing of an outstretched hand holding a tiny tree, student Cole Ivie was chosen as a regional winner in this year’s Arbor Day poster contest, sponsored by the Utah Division of Forestry, Fire and State Lands. Cole’s poster was selected from entries from Salt Lake, Duchesne, Utah, Wasatch and Uintah counties.
For participating, Midvalley received a $50 certificate toward purchasing a new tree from a nursery. Cole, who just finished the second grade, also won a nursery gift card, Arbor Day T-shirt and other prizes for his regional award.
