2023 NACD POSTER CONTEST WINNERS
Thank you to all who participated in the 2023 National Association of Conservation District (NACD) Poster Contest sponsored by Lewis & Clark Natural Resources District (LCNRD). Three schools, Holy Trinity Elementary, Wynot, and East/West Catholic, participated. There were five entries in the K through 2nd grade competition level, 20 for the 4th through 6th grade competition level, one for 7th through 9th grade, and one for the new Digital Media Poster Contest.
The students did a great job visually describing the theme “One Water.” The selection criteria for 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 state contest winner will then move on to Washington D.C. for national judging.
This year’s local NACD Poster Contest winners are kindergartener Abigail from East/ West Elementary, 7th grader Kiersten Hans (Wynot Public Schools) for print and digital, and 5th grader Lucy Steffen (Holy Trinity Elementary).
Now is the time to start thinking and spreading the word about next year’s competition. The 2024 Poster Contest theme will be “May the Forest Be with You Always.” More information can be found at https://www.nacdnet.org/general-resources/stewardship-and-education-materials.
