Reginald D. Forbes Art Show: Since 1974, the art show and competition has been a regular part of the Allegheny Society of American Foresters winter training with the objective of fostering and displaying the artistic abilities of foresters and their family members. All those interested are invited to submit entries. A display area for viewing artwork has been set aside convenient to the main meeting room and exhibitor area. There will be three categories for entries: photography, flat art and 3-dimensional artwork. Ribbons and certificates will be presented. Awards will be determined by the votes of the attendees. So please visit the Art Show and remember to drop your vote in the ballot box after enjoying the show. Contact Mike Kusko at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Student Forum and Quiz Bowl: This year the student forum will include a mingle and munch at lunch with all attendees. The Thursday afternoon session will have a graduate student research presentation and a panel of public and private forestry professionals and an ISA certified arborist who will interact with students.
Each year college students from the region’s forestry schools compete in the Quiz Bowl. This event tests the forestry knowledge of students from baccalaureate and associate degree forestry programs. We have tried to keep costs as low as possible for students and hope we receive a good response to our “Sponsor a Student” request.
