2016 NACD Poster Contest and Rules


“Local Heroes-Your Hardworking Pollinators” was the theme for 2015 national youth poster contest sponsored by the National Association of Conservation Districts. Tidewater SWCD accepted entries from Mathews, Gloucester, and Middlesex youth in grades K-12.  This contest begins at the local level where the local winners are selected and then move on to the state level competition. State level winners then advance to the national level competition. Tidewater Soil and Water Conservation District recently recognized its local poster contest winners.  It was a great challenge to select the local winners from the many outstanding entries. There were two local winners selected and each advanced to the state level competition. Each local winner received a $25.00 Wal-Mart gift card compliments of Tidewater SWCD.   We are looking forward to next year’s poster contest and are very proud of the artistry we received this year.

Congratulations Poster Contest Winners!
