Poster Contest

Reven Lael Wright, Colorado, 2nd place, Grade 4-6

The annual NACD and NACD Auxiliary Poster Contest provides students from kindergarten through 12th grade the chance to have their art displayed as part of a national conservation outreach initiative. Each year, the winning posters reflect NACD’s annual Stewardship theme and highlight the work of conservation districts and their state conservation associations, auxiliaries and agencies to protect and enhance natural resources. The contest starts at the district level; winners advance to the state level, and then to the national level, where they receive recognition at NACD’s annual meeting.

Washington State Contest

To participate in the state level contest, please submit the top poster in each division (K-1, 2-3, 4-6, 7-9, 10-12) with an entry form signed by the child’s guardian and the Local to State Form to Dana Bowers by November 1 of the contest year. The top poster in each division at the state level will go on to the National Conservation Poster Contest coordinated by NACD.

State Level Prizes

First place winners will receive $50; second place winners will receive $30; and third place winners will receive $20. The Washington State Envirothon sponsors prizes at the state level.
