The National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD) Stewardship and Education Committee is pleased to announce the 2019 Poster Contest and Stewardship Week theme: “Life in the Soil: Dig Deeper.”
The 64th Annual Stewardship Week will take place Apr. 28 – May 5, 2019.
Soil is a dirty topic, but everyone needs to learn more about it! Soil is the foundation for many of the items we use in our daily life, such as food, clothing, clean water, homes and more. Healthy soil equals healthy food, which equals a healthy you. Don’t treat your soil like dirt! Contact your local conservation district to help you care for your soil.
The annual NACD and NACD Auxiliary Poster Contest provides students form 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 the NACD’s annual meeting. The poster contest is open to the public, private, and home-school students. For more information call Missie Dreiss at (830) 896-4911×3 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
