The Dane County Land & Water Resources Department invites all kindergarten through 12th grade students in Dane County to participate in the 2023 Conservation Awareness Poster Contest. The annual competition encourages students to showcase their creativity and express their thoughts on conservation practices.
The theme for the 2022-2023 school year is “One Water”.
The contest is open to all Dane County public, private and home-schooled students in kindergarten through 12th grade. Submissions will be evaluated in five different age divisions: K-1, 2-3, 4-6, 7-9 and 10-12. The top three posters in each category will receive prizes. First place winners: $20; Second place winners: $15; and third place winners: $10. Each of the 1st place division winners will advance to the area competition, with a chance for their poster to win further prizes at the state and national level!
Posters and entry forms (see below) are due by 5:00 p.m. on January 6, 2023 to the Dane County Land & Water Resources Department. Blank posters and entry forms will be made available for interested participants upon request.
New this year: In addition to the K-12 poster contest we have created water themed coloring pages for our pre-Kindergarten friends around the county! These are available to download and print at the buttons below. Young artists are invited to send in or drop off their coloring page to be entered to win a prize!
There are so many important ways water impacts our lives and the world around us. We’ve gathered some educational materials from various partners for families and educators.
