Smokey Bear Celebrates His 75th Birthday

Smokey Bear

The Arkansas Agriculture Department’s Forestry Commission is sponsoring a Smokey Bear “Shout-Out” contest now through April 19th to celebrate Smokey’s 75th birthday. Smokey is the fictional bear that was designated the symbol for forest fire prevention in 1944 by the U.S. Forest Service and the Ad Council.

Elementary classes across Arkansas are invited to record a short video wishing Smokey a happy birthday and to share it with AFC and the Arkansas Agriculture Department’s social media sites for a chance to win a birthday party with Smokey.   MORE
