The Uinta County Conservation District, in accordance with National Soil and Water Stewardship Week in April, participates in the National Association of Conservation District’s annual poster contest. This contest is open to kindergarten through 12th grade public and home school students to creatively reflect the current year’s natural resource conservation theme and enter to win a cash prize.
The 2020 National Association of Conservation Districts’ Stewardship Week will take place
Apr. 26 – May 3, 2020.
1st Place $100
2nd Place $50
3rd Place $25
The 2020 Stewardship Week and Poster Contest theme is:
"Where would we BEE without Pollinators"
Grocery stores would be rather empty without the hard work of bees, birds, butterflies, bats and other pollinators. More than 80% of the world’s plants need pollinators to survive, including many that provide the food we eat. But today, many pollinators are in trouble and in decline. When pollinators shrink in number, many plants either produce less seed or no seed at all.
The Poster Contest is open to all K-12 public, private and home school students in Uinta County.
Local winners advance to the state contest.

Posters must be submitted to the Uinta County Conservation District by 4:00 pm on April 30, 2020
The 2020 Stewardship title “Where would we BEE without Pollinators?” 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 between 8.5” x 11” and 22” x 28”. Larger posters have more impact!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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 packaged so they remain flat when sent 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.

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.
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 to view posters that have previously won at the national level.
Posters must be delivered to our office by 4:00 pm on April 30th to be entered.
For more information, entry forms or answers to your questions please contact UCCD.
