2019 Contest Theme: Life in the Soil: Dig Deeper
To all districts - we invite you to participate in the 2019 NACD Poster
Contest. This year's theme is "Life in the Soil: Dig Deeper.” This conservation poster contest invites kids Kindergarten to 12th grade to explore water stewardship activities in their communities. Information on the contest, including a free PowerPoint presentation to share with teachers, scout groups or others can be found for download below. Adapt these tools to fit the needs of your own program.
Why enter? Designing a poster and researching the theme can give students a voice on important conservation issues. Good posters tell stories to present and future generations. Posters capture people's attention with a powerful graphic and inspire with a message for your community. Every poster must include the theme tagline, "Life in the Soil: Dig Deeper." Winners of your local contest move on to State and National competitions for cash prizes. Feature your winning entries on your website, at events, in newsletters or around your community.
