speech and poster contests

Why Participate?


Designing a poster and researching the theme can give you a voice in your community on important conservation issues. Posters capture people’s attention and tell important stories in a language that everyone can understand. They inspire, increase awareness, and encourage us to work together to protect our natural resources for present and future generations.

For more than 50 years, the National Association of Soil Conservation Districts (NACD) have sponsored a national program to encourage Americans to focus on stewardship. Each year, Idaho's conservation districts participate in a Poster and Speech contest, utilizing the current NACD theme.  Winning entries will be selected by your local conservation district and sent to the division and state levels for judging.
