The artistic talents of Cleo Furney

A North Island youngster was one of nine kids recognized for their artwork in a province-wide contest.

More than 870 children entered in the National Forest Week art contest, held by the Association of BC Forest Professionals (ABCFP) and the Truck Loggers Association (TLA), and drew what the forest means to them.

Five-year-old Cleo Furney, of Port McNeill, was a runner-up in the age 4 to 5 category.

The contest was judged in Vancouver Nov. 17 and each of the winning entries will be published in the ABCFP and TLA magazines and posted on the websites of both organizations.

Cleo’s family was very proud of her.

“She’s a fantastic little kid,” said grandfather and Port McNeill mayor Gerry Furney.
