Thank you to all who participated in the 2022 National Association of Conservation District (NACD) Poster Contest sponsored by Lewis & Clark Natural Resources District (LCNRD). Three schools, Holy Trinity Elementary, Wynot, and Bloomfield, participated. There were 22 entries for the 4th through 6th grade competition level and 13 for 7th through 9th grade.

The students did a great job visually describing the theme “Healthy Soils, Healthy Life.” Selection criteria of the posters included conservation message, visual effectiveness, originality, and universal appeal. The posters were judged by LCNRD staff and directors, and winning posters were sent to Lincoln to be considered at the state level, which will take place in December. The winner of the state contest will then move on to Washington D.C. for national judging.

This year’s local NACD Poster Contest winners are 6th grader Kiersten Hans (Wynot Public Schools) and freshman Miley Pinkelman (Bloomfield Community Schools).

Now is the time to start thinking and spreading the word about next year’s competition. The 2023 Poster Contest theme will be “One Water.” More information can be found at https://www.nacdnet.org/general-resources/stewardship-and-education-materials.
