Northern N.M. student wins Christmas tree essay contest
Asher Dean, a fourth grader from Arroyos del Norte Elementary in Arroyo Seco, is the winner of the 2019 U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree Essay Contest hosted by Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham and the Carson National Forest.
Hundreds of fourth graders from around the state submitted essays about why they love New Mexico’s forests and public lands. Dean will travel to Washington, D.C., and join Lujan Grisham in lighting the Capitol Christmas Tree.
“New Mexico is proud to be providing this year’s Capitol Christmas Tree,” Lujan Grisham said. “Asher’s essay spoke so eloquently about the beauty he sees in New Mexico public lands.”
This year’s tree, which is the third Capitol Christmas Tree from New Mexico, is from the Red River area in the Questa Ranger District of Carson National Forest.
