All schools who participate in the program areinvited to submit stories for each grade. All of the nominees receive Honorary Certificates as finalists in the Giving Tree Story Competition.
For 2017, students in Kintergarten, G1, and G2 submitted drawngs, while G3, G4, G5, and G6 submitted stories.
Based on voting by Giving Tree donors and volunteers at the Giving Tree End of Year Appreciation Party, 1 story per grade level was selected to win a prize pack.
