Annual Agricultural Poster Contest

Every spring, Strathcona County’s Agricultural Service Board (ASB) invites kids in elementary schools (grade 3, 4, and 5) in Strathcona County and Fort Saskatchewan to participate in their annual school poster contest. The contest encourages children to think about the importance of agriculture and how it links to them, whether they live on a farm, acreage or in town. Children have an opportunity to win prizes as well as express their ideas about the agriculture community. 

Arbor Day

Calling all Grade 1 and 2 Teachers

A week long celebration from May 3 to 7, 2021

Arbor Day celebrates the important role trees play in our life and teaches students about tree care and planting. This special day has been observed by Strathcona County for over 40 years.

Help develop the importance of trees and caring for our environment at an early age. Each year, Grade 1 students in Strathcona County are presented with a seedling to help celebrate Arbor Day.

For 2021, we are inviting all Grade 2 students in Strathcona County as Arbor Day was cancelled in 2020 during their Grade 1 year. To find out more and access virtual activities visit the Arbor Day web page.
