2019 Soil and Water Stewardship Week Poster Contest

Life in the Soil: Dig Deeper

This year’s theme is “Life in the Soil: Dig Deeper.” Soil is a dirty topic, but everyone needs to learn more about it! Soil is the foundation for many of the items we use in our daily life, such as food, clothing, clean water, homes and more. Healthy soil equals healthy food, which equals a healthy you. Don’t treat your soil like dirt!

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.

Local awards and recognition will be given. Local winners in each category will be sent to the Virginia Association of Soil and Water Conservation Districts. State winners will be eligible for NACD’s National Poster Contest and prizes.  Boy and Girl Scouts entering will also receive a patch for participation.

The Poster Contest is open to all Loudoun County public, private and homeschooled students in
grades K—12.
