Poster Contest

The Putnam County Soil Conservation District (SCD) is sponsoring a Soil and Water Stewardship Poster Contest for all third grade students in Putnam County and would love to see your school be a part of the contest. This is an annual event through districts in all states and will be Putnam County’s 2nd year.

Why should your school participate?

Good posters tell important stories to present and future generations. Also, posters capture people’s attention with a powerful graphic and inspire with a message for your community.
