Artfully-decorated Christmas trees line the International Terminal check-in area throughout the holiday season, thanks to local Lower Mainland elementary school students who participated in the Airport Authority’s 14th annual tree decorating contest.
Some 30 classes visited YVR between November 24 and 28 to bedeck trees sponsored by local businesses with handmade ornaments. Trees that receive the most votes from a group of airport community judges will earn students great prizes from sponsors including Richmond Aquatic Services, Vancouver Aquarium, Capilano Suspension Bridge, Staples and Care Pest Control.
Now in its final year, the tree decorating contest supports Quest Food Exchange and its efforts to supply Christmas dinner and holiday cheer to low income families across Metro Vancouver.
The Airport Authority wishes to thank all schools, students and businesses that have made the Christmas tree decorating contest so successful during its 14-year tenure.
