National Conservation Poster Contest

SEEK Updated
Resource Types: 

The annual National Conservation Poster Contest provides kindergarten through twelfth 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. To locate your local district search the state directory, available through the link listed below. Local district winners advance to the state level. For questions regarding state competitions, districts should contact their state association. Finally, state winners advance to the National Contest. National winners are recognized each year at the NACD Annual Meeting.

First place winners will receive $100 and second place winners will receive $75.

Deadline: December 1

Please Note: Check your state poster contest sponsoring group to determine deadline and theme topic and correct poster size. Each state coordinates their own contest. Posters must follow your state's guidelines to be eligible for the national contest.
