The 2021 Conservation Poster Contest Information and Entry Form
The Annual Conservation Poster Contest, sponsored by the National Association of Conservation Districts, is an opportunity for students to interpret and express their thoughts, their visions about soil, water and related natural resource issues through art and creativity. The contest is open to all K-12 students in public, private, and home schools in the localities we proudly serve – Albemarle, Fluvanna, Louisa and Nelson Counties and the City of Charlottesville. Contest ends October 6, 2021.
The 2021 Contest Theme: Healthy Forests, Healthy Communities
Simply put, trees are vital. As the biggest plants on the planet, trees absorb carbon from the atmosphere, stabilize the soil, filter water, provide healthy habitat for wildlife, and offer many additional benefits for nature, people, and biodiversity. Not only is it necessary to protect existing trees and plant new ones, but it’s also important to advocate and educate about trees and forest conservation within your community. 2021 Conservation Poster Contest is a tree-mendous place to start!
