Local poster contest winners announced

The annual National Association of Conservation District’s National Conservation Poster Contest provides kindergarten through 12th-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 in cooperation with the Washington County Soil Conservation District in Maryland.

Each year, the poster contest starts at the district level. District winners then advance to the state level. Finally, state winners advance to the National Contest.

Artwork entered into the national competition is judged at a local conservation district-sponsored poster contest and a state conservation association- or state auxiliary-sponsored contest.
