2019 Conservation Poster Contest

The NACD Stewardship and Education Committee is pleased to announce the 2019 Poster Contest and Stewardship Week theme: “Life in the Soil: Dig Deeper.” 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. There will be 45 state winners.  Of those, the five first-place state winners will receive a $50 cash award and the remaining 40 winners will receive a $35 cash award thanks to the generous donation of Grinnell Mutual. The five first-place state winners will be on display at the 2019 CDI Annual Conference on August 18th-20th and then will be sent to the national poster contest for consideration for a national award and on display at the 2020 NACD Annual Meeting. Rules, additional information and other resources for the 2019 NACD Poster Contest information can be found here
