The Development 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 "Where would we BEE without Pollinators?"
This theme MUST be used to be eligible for the national contest with the NACD. Pollinators form the foundations of a healthy and sustainable future for food and the environment, but in recent years, they have shown concerning signs of decline. It’s important that we work to help them prosper by enhancing native pollinator habitats and protecting against pollinator declines.
NEW FOR THIS YEAR ~ POSTER SIZE MUST BE 14" X 22" OR 12" X 18" - 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 December 2, 2019. The first place winners from the County contest will be entered in the Lake Michigan Land & Water Conservation Association area contest mid-January, 2020. The first place winners from the area contest will be entered in the state contest in March, 2020. Winners of the state contest (who meet eligibility requirements) will be entered into the National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD) National Contest in 2020. Winners of the National contest will be featured at the 2021 NACD Annual Conference in February.
