The Gadsden Soil and Water Conservation District sponsors a number of programs that serve the Gadsden County communities. Through community support and fundraising efforts, the district is working to build the number of services we are able to offer. Poster & Speech Contest are some of the educational programs with which we are currently involved.
Each year, the poster contest starts at the district level. Individuals and teachers with questions regarding district contests should contact their local district. To locate your local district search our state directory. District winners advance to the state level. For questions regarding state competitions, districts should contact their state association. Finally, state winners advance to the National Contest. National winners are recognized each year at the NACD Annual Meeting.
**PLEASE NOTE: Check your state poster contest sponsoring group to determine deadline and theme topic and correct poster size. Each state coordinates their own contest. Posters must follow your state’s guidelines to be eligible for the national contest.
