Poster Contest: 3rd- through 5th-Grade Students
Each year the Beaufort Soil and Water Conservation District extends an invitation to 3rd- through 5th-grade students in Beaufort County to showcase their creativity through the annual poster contest. The North Carolina Association of Soil and Water Conservation Districts sponsors the contest which begins on the local level. The contest purpose is to provide third through 6th-grade students an opportunity to become aware of and share their concerns for soil and water conservation through poster art. Our theme changes yearly on a rotating basis.
First-place winners' entries will advance to the Area 5 competition which includes 16 counties in northeastern North Carolina. Area 5 winners will go on to the State level. Not only will the District first place winners in 3rd through 6th grades advance to the Area 5 level, they each will receive a cash prize. 2nd- and 3rd-place poster contest winners will also receive cash prizes. In addition, the teachers who have the District 1st-place winners will each win a cash prize.
