The Smokey Bear/ Woodsy Owl Poster Contest, sponsored by California Garden Clubs, Inc. is now in progress. The Patterson Garden Club is sponsoring the 2014 poster contest. Any first through fifth grade student living within the boundaries of the Patterson Joint Unified School District is eligible to enter.
In 2013, Julia Hoxie, daughter of Jerry and Helen Hoxie, was awarded third place at the fourth-grade level for the entire state of California after the local garden club entered her local first place poster.
Julia was not able to attend the ceremony at the California Garden Clubs, Inc. state conference in San Diego. Instead, Frank Stehli, local 2013 poster contest chairman, presented a certificate and medal to Julia at the Patterson Garden Club’s September meeting.
All necessary information and materials for the 2014 contest are available at local elementary school offices. Entries are due to Patterson Garden Club on Dec. 3 and will be judged by members on Dec 19. Winning entries will be sent to the California Garden Clubs Inc. by Jan 10 to be judged at the state level.
