What is National Conservation Poster Contest?
The annual National Conservation Poster Contest provides kindergarten through twelth grade students an opportunity to convey their thoughts about soil, water and related natural resource issues through art. It also highlights the educational outreach efforts of conservation districts and their state conservation associations, auxiliaries and agencies. The poster contest theme follows the annual Stewardship theme. The contest is co-sponsored by the National Association of Conservation Districts and the NACD Auxiliary.
Each year, the poster contest starts at the district level. Individuals and teachers with questions regarding district contests should contact their local district. District winners advance to the state level. Finally, state winners advance to the National Contest. National winners are recognized each year at the NACD Annual Meeting.
