Poster Contest ENTRY RULES

 

  • Poster Contest is open to all K-12 public, private and home school students in Uinta County WY.

  • Posters must be submitted by 4:00 pm on the deadline date. Please drop you poster off at one of the following locations: 

    • ​your school office

    • the Conservation District office (204 E Sage, Lyman) Mon.-Thur. 8-4

    • the UWYO Extension office (228 9th St, Evanston) Mon.-Fri. 9-5

  • The Stewardship theme must be on your poster.

  • Paint, crayon, colored pencil, charcoal, stickers, paper or other materials may be used to create a flat or two-dimensional effect on regular posters. Computer generated posters are not allowed.

  • Poster size must be 22” x 28”.

  • A signed/completed entry form must be firmly attached to the back of the poster to make it eligible for judging.

  • Entry forms can be found at our website at www.uintacountycd.com. You can also visit our office at 204 E Sage St in Lyman WY, or email klott.uccd@gmail.com. By signing the entry form and submitting a poster you agree that your child’s poster and picture can be displayed on our website or other media outlets for UCCD purposes.

  • Posters should be handled so they remain flat for judging.

  • All posters must be created by an individual student rather than a team of students.

  • Although younger students will most likely receive help in planning from parents or teachers, UCCD encourages each student to do as much of the work as possible by him/herself.  Entries completed by students in their handwriting and coloring will score better than those designed, drawn and colored with adult assistance.

LOCAL POSTER EVALUATIONS AND PRIZES:

    • Universal appeal (10 percent)

  • CASH prizes will be awarded by UCCD for first, second and third place winners in each of the five categories. 

  • Each local first place poster will go to the state competition. State winners will be eligible for NACD National Poster Contest and prizes.

  • The Uinta County Conservation District rules follow the National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD) rules (for complete NACD rules visit www.nacdnet.org). 

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?

The local Poster Contest is open to all K-12 public, private and home school students in Uinta County WY. If you are not a Uinta County student and would like to participate, please contact the Conservation District in your area. 

WHY PARTICIPATE?

Personal stewardship can be gained through the investment of your time to research to design a poster on an important conservation issue. Good posters show passion and tell important stories to present and future generations by capturing viewer’s attention with powerful graphics and an inspiring message. The internet or library are great places to visit to come up with an idea for your poster.  You can visit www.nacdnet.org to view posters that have previously won at the national level.

 

For more information, entry forms or answers to your questions please contact UCCD.
