Education Programs - Education Contests

Districts logoThe NC Association of Soil and Water Conservation Districts annually administers a number of education contests at the district and area levels.  Area winners advance to state competitions.

School age contests are held for poster, essay, speech, computer designed poster, and computer designed slide shows.

Detailed information regarding the association's education contests (including rules and judging score sheets) is included in the annual Contest Handbook, posted in the highlights box to the right.

Students are encouraged to enter annual competitions at their local soil & water conservation district to compete for cash awards and recognition.

For more information on any of the education contests, contact your local soil and water conservation district.

Good luck!
