The Association of Illinois Soil & Water Conservation Districts is very excited to see what students are creating for this year’s poster contest theme May the Forest Be with You Always.

As a new addition this year, NACD is introducing a Braille Poster Contest for students who are blind or with vision loss, and an Additional Assist Poster Contest for students who may benefit from additional assistance with creating their posters. Public, private, and home-schooled students are all invited to create posters that celebrate inclusivity and conservation.

As a reminder, districts must submit a JPEG of their winning posters, along with a poster entry form, by May 15, 2024, to the AISWCD Office at to be judged at the June Quarterly Board Meeting.

For the photo contest, photos must fit into one of the four categories: 1.) Conservation Practices 2.) Close-up Conservation 3.) Conservation in Action 4.) Agriculture and Conservation Across America.  Photos must also be submitted by the May 15 deadline, along with a photo entry form. All student entries require a parental signature to move forward. One winner will be selected for each category and age division
