Conservation Poster Contest
The annual Conservation Poster Contest provides kindergarten through twelfth grade students an opportunity to share 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.
Each year, the poster contest starts at the district level. Local Soil and Water Conservation Districts forward their local winning poster entries to the Virginia Association of Soil and Water Conservation District office for consideration at the state level. State winners advance to the National Contest. National winners are recognized each year at the National Association of Conservation Districts Annual Meeting.
The contest is open to public, private or homeschooled students as well as Girl and Boy Scout Troops. Any Girl Scout or Boy Scout who creates a poster and submits it to our office for judging can earn the VASWCD Poster Contest Patch. For more information on the Poster Contest Patch, visit the Scout Programs service on this website.
The theme for 2018 is “Watersheds: Our Water, Our Home.” Click on the links below for the 2018 rules and entry form. For information on the contest or to schedule a presentation for your class or troop, contact Lindy Durham at 501-5175 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
