The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador's Department of Fisheries and Land Resources has announced the provincial winner of the 2017 National Forest Week Poster Contest. Riverside Elementary Grade 5 student Katie Spurrell received her award at the Clarenville school in early December, surrounded by her family and friends. As part of the annual contest, Grade 5 students throughout the province are invited to participate and share their thoughts about forests and forestry related issues through art. As this year was a cross-Canada celebration of the country's 150 anniversary, students were invited to submit enteries under the theme Canada's Forests: Our Stories. Our Future using a poster to depict their thoughts.

As this year's winner, Katie received a framed copy of her poster, an Apple iPad and a Smokey the Bear Fun Pack. Her poster will also be permanently display at the Provincial Forestry and Wildlife Headquarters.
