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 each year by the District to help promote a better understanding of the environmental issues in Atlantic and Cape May Counties.
The theme varies from year to year and is selected in coordination with the National Association of Conservation Districts. The contests are an opportunity for students to explore various natural resource conservation issues, and are a good way for teachers to meet New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards in Science, Social Studies and Visual Arts.
The 2013 theme was "Where Does Your Water Shed?". The poster contest was open to students in grades 2-12. All first place and second place winners were selected by the District and were judged according to the contest theme, conservation message, visual effectiveness, originality and overall appeal. The first place contestant in each age category received a $100.00 gift card. First place winners also had their work sent to Trenton for judging in the statewide competition. Each second place winner received a $50.00 gift card.
Brianna Patterson of Hammonton Middle School, the 7-9th grade District winner, also placed 3rd in the State competition. Congratulations go out to Brianna!
