2019: Life in the Soil: Dig Deeper

The NACD Stewardship and Education Committee is pleased to announce the 2019 Poster Contest and Stewardship Week theme: “Life in the Soil: Dig Deeper.” 

Logo: Color | Black and white

Soil is a dirty topic, but everyone needs to learn more about it! Soil is the foundation for many of the items we use in our daily life, such as food, clothing, clean water, homes and more. Healthy soil equals healthy food, which equals a healthy you. Don’t treat your soil like dirt! Contact your local conservation district to help you care for your soil.

Rules, entry forms and other resources for the 2019 NACD Poster Contest are available on the contests page. The 64th Annual Stewardship Week will take place April 28 – May 5, 2019. Please use the 2019 stewardship materials for educational purposes only.

Please contact Stewardship and Education Coordinator Diana Blackwood for additional logo file types.
