The Wayne Soil and Water Conservation District sponsors an annual poster contest for grades K-12. The poster contest theme changes each year based on the NACD (National Association of Conservation Districts) national theme. The rules and guidelines are followed by the NACD rules.
2018 Stewardship Theme is: "Watersheds: Our Water, Our Home" Posters must have this displayed as the title. Please go to www.nacdnet.org - click on Get Involved tab and then Stewardship & Education - and look for Contests for more detailed info!

DUE April 27th, 2018 to our office...and only open to any school or student in Wayne County. Please have student entry form filled out with each poster.
Attention: Due to redirection of staff & programs, we will no longer have a representative available for student awards or picture taking at the end of the year. Teachers are also responsible for picking up posters (those that did not place or move on to District level) after judging is complete, if they want them returned. Thank-you.
All Poster Contest winners will be sent on to the District contest and also featured in the Wayne SWCD Fair Building in September. The District winners advance to State, and the State advances to the National Level for the Poster Contest.
Any media may be used to create a flat or two-dimensional effect (paint, crayon, colored pencil, charcoal, stickers, paper or other materials on regular posters (no computer only special category)
Although younger students will most likely receive help in planning from parents or teachers, NACD encourages each student to do as much of the work as possible by him/herself. Entries completed by students in their handwriting and coloring will score better than those designed, drawn and colored by adult assistance.
On the back of each poster, please print: Student’s name & age, School grade, Student’s home address, Student’s phone number with area code, School’s address and phone number, & Teacher’s name. NEW! There are FORMS available - with parent's signature required.
