The National Association of Conservation Districts, in partnership with the NACD Auxiliary, announced the winners of the 2019 Photo Contest and 2019 Poster Contest during the 74th NACD Annual Meeting.
The photo contest, open to amateur photographers in both youth and adult divisions, consists of images reflecting the themes of “Agriculture and Conservation Across America,” “Close-Up Conservation,” “Conservation in Action” and “Conservation Practices.”
“This year’s contest winners captured the beauty and importance of our natural resources and those who work to preserve them,” said NACD Auxiliary President Karen Smart.
The 2019 Poster Contest, open to students from kindergarten through 12th grade, celebrated the 2019 NACD Stewardship theme, “Life in the Soil: Dig Deeper.”
“Soil is a crucial foundation for the food, clothing and other items necessary for our survival,” Smart said. “Understanding how to keep soils healthy is critical to ensuring a healthy future for us all.”
