Poster Contest

2022 Stewardship Week: April 24, 2022 – May 1, 2022

The AFCD Poster Contest is open to kindergarten through twelfth grade students. Artwork entered into the State Competition must have been judged at an Area Meeting poster contest. (See Area Meeting dates below)

Each year, the winning posters reflect NACD’s annual Stewardship theme, and highlight the work of conservation districts and their state conservation associations, auxiliaries, and agencies to protect and enhance natural resources. The contest starts at the district level; winners advance to the area level, then to the state level and then to the national level, where they receive recognition at NACD’s annual meeting.

NACD has launched a new, interactive hub for conservation education materials at A login is required, but materials remain free for districts and partners to download and use in their outreach programs.

2022 Poster Contest Theme: “Healthy Soil Healthy Life”

Poster Categories By Grade:

7th-9th 10th-12th

The contest is open to public, private or home school students, girl scout/boy scout troops, etc.

The top three posters in each category of the state contest will receive monetary prizes. First place winners will receive $50 (gift card); second place winners will receive $35 (gift card); and third place winners will receive $25 (gift card). AFCD, through the Ellis Putnal Education Fund, sponsor prizes at the State level.
