Each year, the JSC “Latvijas valsts meži” (LVM) invites schools to get to know and learn about forest in educational events all around Latvia. This year, for the fifth year already, we invited students to participate in a creative contest and create a sticker design for the annual LVM Forest Days’ events.

This year’s sticker theme is – “Forest for Latvia. Next 100”. Almost 700 beautiful and creative works from different places of Latvia were received. The task of judges was not easy because each of the works surprised with creativity and originality, however, after a serious evaluation it was decided that the best work of this year’s competition is the design made by Emīlija Prihodjko from 6th grade of Talsi Elementary School.

The winner of the contest wins a longboard made in Latvia, and also free trip for her and her class/family/friends to the “Forest Days of Latvia” at Tērvete on the May 24, where the award ceremony of this contest will also take place. But the biggest prize – the design of her work will be turned into a sticker, which will be given to all participants of LVM Forest Days 2019.
