Project Green Tree

Congratulations to our Project Green Tree Winners! 

Various trees have been "adopted" by Wurzweiler as part of our “green” initiative, as the official “adopted trees” of The Forest—designated trees our faculty, staff and students are saving as a result of the continuing "greening" of our School. The winning photographs were selected from those submitted to Project Green Tree by Wurzweiler students.

Announcing the Project Green Tree Contest for Spring 2016:

Ready to make a difference?

Help us build our virtual forest and promote our efforts to become “greener” everyday at Wurzweiler! You could become a part of Wurzweiler history and win a valuable prize.

Take a photo of a tree and we might “adopt” your tree as part of The Forest!!! Plus—you could win a great prize!


Take a photo of a tree. Any tree. Anywhere. The photo must be original—one that you personally took within the last year---and it can be of any kind of tree. The photo must be of the tree only and have no people or signs/logos in it at all, in color and cannot be the property of anyone else.

Email the photo by the deadline below to In your email include the following information:

·         Your name

·         Your email address and telephone number

·         A name that you are giving to your tree. The more creative and fun the better (you could call the tree “Norm” or you could make up a fun scientific  name—it’s up to you).

·         The location of the tree (i.e. Staten Island, Boston, etc)

Wait to see if you win! Photographs will be judged by Wurzweiler staff and decisions are final. Winners will be subjectively judged based on a combination of photographic excellence, image quality, creativity/originality and the visual “personality” of the tree, and judges will not be aware of the identity of the photographer until judging is completed. Wurzweiler retains the option to select fewer than three winners if submissions are inadequate. Submission of your photograph implies a permission of unrestricted perpetual use by Wurzweiler regardless of winning.


The winning  photographs will be featured on the Wurzweiler website as part of our “green” initiative as the official “adopted trees” of The Forest. The winning trees will be announced at Common Day .

The winners will each receive valuable prize(s) and the distinguished honor of being a part of Wurzweiler history.

Good luck and happy photographing!
