Did you know that this year marks Tyler’s 70th anniversary as a public arboretum? Help us celebrate!
From June 1 – July 31, 2014, we will be accepting entries for contests perfect for adults, teens, kids and families who want to show their love for Tyler. All winners will be announced at the Butterfly Festival on August 23.
ADULTS: Using the theme “Celebrating 70 Years of Tyler,” submit your best photos (no more than 4 per entrant) taken at Tyler between 2009-2014. Entries will be narrowed down to the top 20 by Tyler staff, and then will be judged by the public via Facebook. The top 20 entries will be displayed at the Butterfly Festival. The top 5 winning entries will then go on permanent display at Tyler.
KIDS: Show Tyler some love by making a birthday card for the Arboretum! Drop off your entries at the Visitor Center and we’ll take a picture of your card to share on Facebook where people can see your creative artwork and vote on their favorites. All entries will be displayed at the Butterfly Festival on August 23. The top winners from each age category will receive a ribbon and a $10 gift certificate to the Visitor Center.
VIDEO: Tell the world how much you love Tyler while stretching your creativity! Create a video (1-3 minutes) using the theme “Why I love Tyler” and use the entry form below to enter the contest. Do it solo or invite family and friends who love Tyler as much as you do. Entries will be judged by the public via Facebook. The top 3 entries will receive 2 guest passes and their video will be added to the website and Tyler’s YouTube channel. Participants may be of any age, but entries must be submitted by people 13-years-old and older.
