Conservation Poster Contest

The Conservation Poster Contest is an annual event sponsored by Soil and Water Conservation Districts nationwide. The purpose of the contest is to provide young people with an avenue to gain a better appreciation for our environment and share this caring sentiment through artwork.


2022 Poster Contest Theme: “Healthy Soils: Healthy Life”

Healthy soils are the foundation for all life on Earth. Soil is an important resource for everything from human health to agriculture to water filtration. The imperative benefit of healthy soil is food production. Healthy soils also give us clean air and water, plentiful crops and forests, diverse wildlife and beautiful landscapes. It is important that each of us recognize where our food comes and the farmers and ranchers who are dedicated to using responsible land-management practices to ensure a sustainable food supply and healthy land and soil for future generations.


• The Franklin County Conservation Poster Contest is open to any student in grades K-12 in Franklin County. The contest will run from January 31st – April 15th.

• Posters created by students should share an environmental message with a focus on the 2022 theme “Healthy Soil: Healthy Life.”

Hand Drawn Posters (Grades K-12): Any type of 8 1/2” x 11” paper may be used, however, to further the conservation message you are encouraged to reuse paper that has been used on one side. Any form of coloring, writing, painting or drawing may be used. No pictures of commercial origin are permitted. Hand Drawn Poster Requirements can be found here.

Digital Posters (Grades 7-12): In addition to the hand drawn competition, there will be a separate Digital Contest for those interested in creating an original poster, with original artwork, using a digital format/device.
