We were absolutely thrilled to see the amount of submissions and the incredible effort that was put into the Easter trees of all our participants. There were so many amazing entries and it was incredibly hard for our judging panel to choose the winners.

We would however, like to congratulate our category winners! And a heartfelt thanks to all those who participated. We hope you enjoyed spending that time with your families and that you made new memories along the way.

We're excited to announce 1st and 2nd place prize winners in all four categories below.

"The students in my classroom wanted to create and submit our one-of-a-kind Easter tree which represents each one of my students. Our classroom is part of an alternative school, La Clef, with students attending due to various reasons, each one being as unique as all are students are. The fact that these students overcome many obstacles to obtain their high school diplomas and the fact that they are from all different walks of life makes this tree special.  Creating such a beautiful and unique tree is one of the rare opportunities that resulted in them coming together and working together.

P.S. They even wanted to include our classroom mascot, Raticus. LOL"
 

2nd Place 

Samantha T. from Hornepayne, ON

"This is our Spring Tree in the kindergarten classroom at École Saint nom de Jésus in Hornepayne Ontario. We decided to do 1 tree as a group since there is only 4 students in the classroom. The tree changes as the season changes. As spring is here and Easter is near the children decided to decorate the tree with eggs and by talking about the life cycle of a chicken. The children made their own chickens and painted eggs while exploring with colour changing to decorate  the tree. The children were excited to decorate and place their own creativity to wherever they would want it to go."

"One legend about pysanky eggs tells of them having the power to keep evil from destroying the world.  The more eggs are created the less evil there will be in the world."


2nd Place 

Samantha G. from Oshawa, ON

"I lost my 43 year old sister to ovarian cancer last June. 
Headstones are delayed due to covid and her cemetery plot looked so lonely and sad 
An egg tree was the perfect, and perhaps a better replacement to a marble stone. Don’t you think?! 

Happy Easter to you"
