The annual Conservation Poster Contest provides kindergarten through twelfth-grade students an opportunity to convey their thoughts about soil, water and related natural resource issues through art. Any Girl Scout or Boy Scout who creates a poster and submits it to their local SWCD for judging can earn the VASWCD Poster Contest Patch. When submitting a poster to earn the Poster Contest Patch, be sure to check the box on the entry form. Please note that poster patches are distributed in December each year. More information regarding the patch can be found here.

The Northern Neck SWCD Poster Contest is open now until Tuesday, October 1, 2024. Students must fill out the Entry Form and submit it along with their Poster.
