Each year, the Cape Atlantic Conservation District, in cooperation with New Jersey Association of Conservation Districts, sponsors an annual Poster Contest. The contest is sponsored to help promote a better understanding of the environmental issues in Atlantic and Cape May Counties. The National Conservation Poster Contest provides second through twelfth grade students an opportunity to convey their thoughts about soil, water and related natural resource issues through art.
The District contest theme follows the annual Stewardship theme and varies year to year. Designing a poster and researching the theme can give you a voice in your community on important conservation issues. Good posters tell important stories to present and future generations, while capturing people's attention with a powerful graphic and share an inspiring message with your community. In addition, it is a good way for teachers to meet New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards in Science, Social Studies and Visual Arts.
All first place and second place winners are selected by the District, with the first place in each age category receiving a $50 gift card. Each second place winner will receive a $25 gift card.
First place winners on the District level are entered into the State competion where they are judged, with State winners moving onto the National competition.
