Friends of Hot Springs National Park recently announced the winners of its people's choice winners for favorite holiday tree from the annual Holiday Trees event held at the Ozark Bath House over the holidays.
All of the trees featured creative student-made ornaments. "By a narrow margin," Benton High School garnered the most votes for its festive tree with red and silver soda can ornaments, the organization said in a news release.
The nonprofit winner was Mid-America Science Museum's Science After School program's "ChemisTree."
Each winning tree will be awarded a $25 prize.
"We thank all of the schools, students and teachers who participated in the 2019 Holiday Trees event," the release said.
Seven of the trees were decorated by students from Garland County public schools. They included K-6 students at Cutter Morning Star; K-6 students at Mountain Pine; ninth- through 12th-grade math classes from Hot Springs World Class High School; the art class from Hot Springs High; the eighth-grade enrichment class from Fountain Lake Middle school, Cobra Digital Prep Academy; the art club from Hot Springs High; and art students in grades 10-12 from Lake Hamilton High School.
An eighth tree was decorated by Art 1 and Visual Art Appreciation students in grades 10-12 at Benton High School. The ninth tree was decorated by an eighth-grade science class from Athens Middle school in Athens, Texas.
Friends of Hot Springs National Park is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that supports Hot Springs National Park through advocacy, fundraising, and volunteerism, the release said.
