An Armstrong boy has been recognized for his artwork.

Austin Dubland, an eight-year-old home-schooled student, is among the winners of a National Forest Week contest held by the Association of B.C. Forest Professionals (ABCFP) and the Truck Loggers Association (TLA).

More than 870 children picked up crayons and paints, and sketched their ideas of what the forest means to them and their communities.

Dubland was a runner-up in the six-to-eight-year-old category.

The winner was a girl from Richmond.

Emily Richardson of Revelstoke was the winner in the nine-to-12 category while a Kelowna girl was one of the two runners-up in the four-to-dive division.

Each category had a winner and two runners-up. All of the winning entries will be published in the ABCFP and TLA magazines and posted at www.abcfp.ca and www.tla.ca.

The first-place winner in each category received a $50 Chapters gift certificate.
