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.
