"This would mean so much to our school and to our community!" said Hiram Teacher Lauren Camp. "Please feel free to forward this message or share the link with anyone who supports the planting of new trees!"

Thanks to Scotties, a leader in the tissue industry, the Grand Prize winner will receive $10,000 for their school to use towards a sustainable project, such as tree plantings, updated / recycled playground equipment and energy efficient lighting. Kids who entered the contest were required to create a three-minute video on the importance of trees -- to themselves, to their school, and to their community.

When teacher Lauren Camp was approached by PTA president, Gina Baklini with the idea of this contest she didn’t hesitate. “I jumped on board immediately!” said Camp. “My brother is in the production industry, he was very helpful working with the class – and ultimately the tree as a best 
friend was born.” 

In the video, viewers follow student Justin Edwards as he gives a report in front of his class on why trees are important to him. Justin nervously talks about his tree best friend and how much they enjoy together - playing soccer, hide-n-seek, and leaning on while reading a good book.
