The Land Information Committee and the Land & Water Conservation is once again sponsoring the Environmental Awareness Poster Contest in cooperation with the Wisconsin Land & Water Conservation Association (WLWCA). This activity is approved and listed on the Advisory List of the Association of Wisconsin Administrators. It is held in conjunction with area and state contests. Poster contest participants are encouraged to base their posters on the theme of "Watersheds ~ Our Water, Our Home"
This theme MUST be used to be eligible for the national contest with the NACD. The theme takes into account that water is one of our most precious resources. Watersheds supply water for drinking and recreation, irrigation and manufacturing, and wildlife and bird habitat. It is essential that each of us adopts good water conservation habits so that we can keep our water resources safe and productive now and for future generations.
NEW FOR THIS YEAR ~ POSTER SIZE MUST BE 14" X 22" ANY OTHER SIZE WILL BE DISQUALIFIED.
The Environmental Awareness Poster Contest has five divisions. Cash prizes are awarded to the first three places and honorable mention in each division. All participants will receive a certificate.
Poster entries must be at the Land & Water Conservation on or before November 10, 2017. The first place winners from the County contest will be entered in the Lake Michigan Land & Water Conservation Association area contest mid-January, 2018. The first place winners from the area contest will be entered in the state contest in March, 2018. Winners of the state contest (who meet eligibility requirements) will be entered into the National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD) National Contest in 2018. Winners of the National contest will be featured at the 2019 NACD Annual Conference in February.
