Brookwood Student Artwork Selected for Display

Brookwood Arbor Day Winners
Shawnee Mission School District

Three Brookwood Elementary fifth-grade students are helping their community celebrate as Arbor Day approaches.

Heba Boullaouz, was named a winner, and Ella Gray and Stella Shumate received Honorable Mentions in a local art contest. All three posters are currently on display at the Leawood Library.

The posters will be on display at Leawood City Hall following a ceremony at the City Council meeting on March 2.

“Arbor Day is important to me because a world without trees would affect shelter for birds and animals,” Heba shared.  “Without animals we wouldn’t have a food chain or complete ecosystem.”

Sarah Gilmore PTA environmental/composting chair and clerical aide at Brookwood helped to organize the contest that is facilitated by the Leawood Tree Committee and Kansas Forest Service.
