2020 Conservation Poster Contest

The Stewardship and Education Committee has developed a five-year rotation for stewardship topics – water, soil, habitat, forestry, and a topic of interest – and determines the theme each year. The 2020 Poster Contest and Stewardship Week theme is “Where would we BEE without Pollinators?” 

Pollinators form the foundations of a healthy and sustainable future for food and the environment, but in recent years, they have shown concerning signs of decline. It’s important that we work to help them prosper by enhancing native pollinator habitats and protecting against pollinator declines.

The 2020 Stewardship and Education materials are now available to download for free on NACD’s Marketplace. Click here to view and download the materials. Rules, entry forms and other resources for the 2020 NACD Poster Contest will be available for download later this fall.

How to Enter:

All entries at the local and state-level contest must be submitted with this Local to State Form along with this contest entry form (placed on the back of each poster) by the due dates set by your local conservation district. Find contact information for your local conservation district on NACD’s Conservation District Directory. All poster submissions must be sponsored by a local conservation district.
