Get Recognition for Your Class and Your School

National Forest Hall of Fame

As a teacher of the Finding My Forest program, YOU are invited to submit your class for the National Forest Hall of Fame!

This exciting national recognition program from the U.S. Forest Service will feature chosen classrooms from across the country. To compete, all you need to do is submit the link to a blog that features your class’s outdoor activities – but you must do so by April 29!

One participating classroom's blog from each state will be chosen for the Hall of Fame. Entering is easy! Just submit your classroom blog url for consideration, and your classroom could be famous across your state and the whole country.

If selected, your classroom will receive:

  • A special National Forest Hall of Fame Award Certificate, suitable for framing
  • Inclusion in a National Hall of Fame press release
  • A link to your classroom blog here on this site, showcasing how you've been exploring and caring for forests. 

How to Enter: You have two options!

  • Submit an existing class blog. Just be sure to post about the outdoor activities that your students have completed, either in school or at home. (See your Finding My Forest Teacher’s Guide for ideas!)


  • Submit your Finding My Forest blog. Submit your ideas and updates via your new project-specific blog.  (Get easy instructions for setting up a class blog at:
