Nick Sakiyama and Ayla Roche were runners-up in the National Forest Week Art Contest.

Revelstoke students Nick Sakiyama and Ayla Roche finished runners-up in the National Forest Week art contest last week.

Sakiyama, 11, and Roche, 12, were runners-up to Evan Smith of Salmon Arm in the 9-12 age group. They both received a $50 gift certificate for their efforts.

The contest was put on by the Association of BC Forest Professionals and the Truck Loggers Association.

Sakiyama and Roche’s drawings were selected by the Revelstoke Forest Workers Society, who held a contest at each elementary school in Revelstoke.

“This contest gets students thinking about our forests and how important they are to our life in Revelstoke,” said Mike Copperthwaite, the chairman of the Revelstoke Forest Workers Society and general manager of Revelstoke Community Forest Corporation.
