Want to see some of the cutest things ever? No, we’re not talking about yawning pandas or kitties. We’re talking about some enthusiastic, creative kids sharing why they love forests and trees.

Trees Rock logo - Newsroom January 2013For the last few years, American Forests has been teaming with Scotties Facial Tissue on TREES ROCK!, an educational program aimed at kids and schools. This year’s partnership encouraged kids to create videos up to three minutes in length in which they share the importance of trees to themselves, their school and their community. Today, Scotties announced the 12 finalists, who are eligible for cash and prizes for both themselves and for beautification of their schools.

Voting is open today through February 15, so go watch, smile at the kids and vote for your fave. Don’t think you can or have time to watch all 12 in one sitting? We have you covered, as starting this Monday, we’ll be featuring three videos each week in order to share all of the great work of these kids with you, our loyal readers.
