K-6 Poster Contest
The annual National Conservation Poster Contest provides K - 6 students with an opportunity to convey their thoughts about soil, water, and related natural resource issues through art. Poster theme follows the annual stewardship theme of National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD). The contest highlights the educational outreach efforts of conservation districts and their state conservation associations.
The contest is co-sponsored by the NACD and the NACD Auxiliary.

Announcing the 2014 Poster Contest Theme:
To the farmer, soil is where crops grow.
To the engineer, soil is a foundation upon which to build.
To the ecologist, soil supports communities of living things.
To the archaeologist, soil holds clues to past cultures.
To the city dweller, soil nurtures grass and gardens.
To the soil scientist, soil is all of these things.
Soil has been called "the skin of the earth" because it is the thin outermost layer of the Earth's crust.
Like our own skin, we can't live without soil.

Congratulations to 2013 Poster Contest Winners!
Winning posters are on display at The First, 63 Union Street, Rockland, through April 26.
The 2013 theme, Where Does Your Water Shed?, focused on the concept of watersheds - the area of land that drains to a particular body of water. Everything that happens in the watershed affects the water quality in that lake, stream, pond, river, or bay.
These top four winners will go on to be judged at the state level by students competing in this year's Envirothon. Winning state posters will be entered in the national competition.
