Submit artwork for a chance to plant a tree with the Mayor

Overland Park’s young artists have a chance for their artwork to be featured and recognized by Mayor Carl Gerlach.

The Overland Park Parks and Recreation Department invites students to submit a drawing or painting for this year’s Arbor Day Poster Contest.

Kindergarteners through fourth graders who live in Overland Park can participate.

Artwork should highlight this year’s theme “We All Need Kansas Trees” and include the contest title in the artwork. Please make sure the theme is spelled correctly.
