Claire Heyen wins Arbor Day poster contest at HES


Jonah Kliewer, chairman of the Hillsboro Tree Board, presents fifth-grader Claire Heyen with a copy of her first-place Arbor Day poster Friday afternoon at the Hillsboro Elementary School. The fifth-grade students created posters to mark Arbor Day in Hillsboro. Holding their runner-up posters are (from left) Tessa Loewen, Emily Jost and Karyn Leihy. Heyen?s original poster was sent on to Topeka to compete in the state poster contest. All of the posters created by the HES students will be on display downtown and at the Hillsboro Library for the next few weeks. Mayor Delores Dalke was on hand at the presentation to describe the official proclamation for Arbor Day in Hillsboro, and Tree Board member Cheryl Bartel distributed homemade ?tree? cookies among the students.
