Colton Heimes Wins State Poster Contest
Colton Heimes of Wynot Nebraska was the local and state winner of the 2020 National Association of Conservation Districts Poster Contest for 2nd and 3rd grade division. Heimes’ poster was selected by the Lewis and Clark NRD Board of Directors to be sent on to the state contest. The Nebraska Association of Resources District on the state level chose Heimes’ poster to go on the National competition for that division.
“We’re excited to see so much enthusiasm from our local school children when it comes to conserving our natural resources,” said Annette Sudbeck, manager of the Lewis and Clark NRD. “They impress us with their skill and creative ideas put to paper every year.”

LCNRD is gearing up for the 2021 poster contest with the theme Healthy Forests, Healthy Communities. Grade levels are grouped together into divisions for youth from kindergarten through 12th grade. On the local level the top three entries are awarded prizes. One winner is selected in every division, K-1; 2-3; 4-6; 7-9; 10-12. LCNRD hosts the contest on a local level with all first-place winners forwarded to state to be judged with top winners advanced to the national contest hosted by the National Association of Conservation Districts.
Typically, teachers bring the poster contest to their classrooms and encourage their students to compete. But if individual students want to participate outside of the classroom, contact Lewis and Clark Natural Resources District at email@example.com or call 402-254-6758.
