Lincoln County Conservation District would like to celebrate the Lincoln County winners of the 2017 National Conservation Poster Contest which had the theme: “Healthy Soils are Full of Life!” Students were introduced to such concepts as: soil is necessary in the growth/production of the food we eat; farmers/ranchers take precautions to protect water and soil resources; it takes many people to make food available for consumption; and new behaviors that conserve and protect the earth’s soil.
There were so many great posters and many Honorable Mentions (HM)! Lincoln County Conservation District paid cash prizes for winners: $25 for first place, $20 for second, $15 for third, and $10 for honorable mentions. Winning posters go on to the Nevada Association of Conservation Districts’ contest and first place winners from the state contest continue to the national level. There are cash awards at each level.

The annual National Conservation Poster Contest provides kindergarten through twelfth grade students an opportunity to convey their thoughts about soil, water, and related natural resource issues through art. The contest is open to public, private or homeschool students. Lincoln County Conservation District thanks Hayley Gloeckner for bringing the teaching part of the contest to our schools.
The 2018 theme is Watersheds – Our Water, Our Home. We look forward to lots of creative ideas! Congratulations to all the students, and thanks to the schools and teachers for participating in the National Conservation Poster Contest.
