August 2014 - It's that time again. My daughter already started her sophomore year, and I wonder how much earlier school will continue to start in our district before they jump the date back a week. But, being back in school mode gets me back to work, which is good. There's lots to do before the events start next month.
I am excited to say that the 2013 Annual Report has been mailed, not only to past and potential sponsors, but to the principals of all of the schools that participated in 2013. Teachers, I've asked your principal to pass these copies along to you. Sponsors are stepping up in a big way, and almost every day I receive a check from another devoted sponsor. I'll update the "Sponsors" page of the website soon.
And if you're on Facebook, go to the Forestry Challenge page and vote for your favorite t-shirt color for this year. So far, maroon has a slight edge over blue, with purple and brown trailing. I'll have to make a decision by the second week in September, so be sure to cast your vote soon!
Until next month,
Welcome to the California Forestry Challenge website. Information on the 2014 events is now posted on the "Events" pages. New this year is the San Bernardino Forestry Challenge, now making the trip to a Forestry Challenge event convenient from anywhere in the state.
If you are unable to open any of these forms, please notify us and we will send you a blank form.
The California Forestry Challenge is a competitive event for high school students in technical forestry and current forestry issues. Using the forest as the classroom, the California Forestry Challenge is project-based learning at its best.
