Who Can Participate:

  • The poster contest is open to all public, private, and homeschooled students in grades K-12


Contest Rules:

  • All posters must be created by an individual student, rather than a team of students.
  • The 2019 theme "Life in the Soil: Dig Deeper" must be included on the front side of each poster
  • Each poster will need the NACD entry form completed and signed by a guardian to be eligible for judging
  • Artwork should be done by the student and not by an adult
  • Any media may be used such as paint, crayons, charcoal, stickers, etc.


Why Participate:

  • By designing the poster and researching the theme it can provide students with a voice in their community on important conservation issues
