Who Can Participate?
The Poster contest is open to all students in public, private or home school, grades K-12.
Posters are due: April 13, 2017
Any media may be used to create a flat or two-dimensional effect (paint, crayon, colored pencil, charcoal, stickers, paper or other materials on regular posters (no computer only special category) Poster size must be 14" x 22".
Posters should be packaged so they remain flat when sent for judging.
All posters must be created by an individual student rather than a team of students.
The 2017 theme “Healthy Soils Are Full of Life” must be on your poster. (Don’t use any other title)
All posters must have an entry form signed and attached to the back of the poster to be eligible for judging.
Although younger students will most likely receive help in planning from parents or teachers, NACD encourages each student to do as much of the work as possible by him/herself. Entries completed by students in their handwriting and coloring will score better than those designed, drawn and colored by adult assistance.
The posters are evaluated on the following criteria:
Conservation message (50 percent) (Poster uses correct theme)
Visual effectiveness (30 percent)
Originality (10 percent) and
Universal appeal (10 percent).
ALL participants will receive a FREE TREE!
Top poster entry will be sent on to the State Contest. State winners will be eligible for NACD National Poster Contest and prizes
