Based on the enormous popularity of the MFMA 2021 Art Contest, "Art for Trees," we at MFMA decided to make this initiative annual! Every year on Earth Day, April 22, to celebrate and give back to our dear Planet, we will be launching the contest with a new theme and invite school-age children from all over the US to participate. For each artwork submission, we will donate to a tree-planting organization of the kids' choice.
 
This year is very special for us: established in 1897, Maple Flooring Manufacturers Association celebrates its 125th Anniversary in 2022! 🎉 To mark this notable occasion,
  • We will donate an anniversary-inspired amount of $12.5 for each submitted artwork,
  • Four 1st Place winners will receive $125 Amazon eGift Cards
  • The theme of the "Art for Trees" contest will be: "The MFMA's Quasquicentennial" (let's learn this word together!😉). 

Each artwork, with the participant's permission, will be proudly showcased in our dedicated Gallery. The first 12 participants will receive a special gift, and each participant will receive a Certificate of Participation!
 
We invite everyone to view the 2021 "Art for Trees" Gallery at www.MFMAArtContest.online. There were 90 participants from 21 US states; this year, let's make it 125 from all 50 states!
