2016 Poster Contest "We All Need Trees"

2016 was our 2nd contiguous year hosting the annual contest. We are pleased to announce over 75 entries were received  from students of both public and private schools within Seminole County.

Seminole Soil & Water Conservation District hosted the presentation of awards on February 9, 2016. The room was full of anticipation as contestants waited for their name to be called announcing their entry as 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.  

The 1st place winner of each grade category will move forward to the Association of Florida Conservation Districts’ Area 3 contest (Spring 2016) and potentially continue to their state (Summer 2016) and national levels (Winter 2016).

We wish all the winners continued success in this process and we will advise the students of their progress in these contests.

 A good time was had by all!

2015 Poster Contest

localheroes.png2015 Poster Contest
Theme:  Local Heroes - Our Hardworking Pollinators


Seminole Soil & Water Conservation District and Conserve All Ways are seeking sponsors for our upcoming poster contest to be held county-wide in
Seminole County Public Schools and private schools within the county.


The theme, Local Heroes - Our Hardworking Pollinators, provides an educational opportunity for youth to better understand and help these beneficial and beautiful insects. One of the most beloved pollinator, the Monarch butterfly, once flourished in Central Florida with their numbers spreading as far north as Canada and then wintering in the Florida Keys and Cuba. Students will also learn why we need to help the bees, our most beneficial and hard
working pollinator.

Contestants will participate in five age appropriate ranges (K-1, 2-3, 4-6, 7-9, 10-12) locally winning cash prizes. Winners of the Seminole County competition move up to the regional competition with opportunities to advance to state and national competitions.

Without your help, the children of Seminole County may not be able to participate in this educational competition. We ask you consider which sponsorship level is appropriate for your organization or as an individual.

Thank you for your time, consideration and participation.
Sincerely,
Judith C. Benson, Chair
