6th Grade Conservation Poster Contest
Every fall during the beginning of the school year, every 6th grader in the San Luis Valley is given the opportunity to learn about a unique, conservation-based topic that aligns with Colorado's core curriculum. Sixth graders are encouraged to get hands on with conservation and make a poster for the contest. After participating in the presentation for that year's topic, 6th graders receive a poster board to create their best design. After a few weeks, the posters are collected and judged at their local Conservation District, with the potential for the winners to move up to the state and national contest. Winners will receive a monetary prize from their local Conservation District. This is a wonderful opportunity for SLV 6th graders to think outside the box, get creative, and adhere to school curriculum standards at the same time!
The 2017 Theme is "Healthy Soils are Full of Life!" This theme will fit in with topics such as ecosystems, erosion, plants, biology, and pretty much anything that needs soil to live or move! RGWCEI provides the presentation, entry forms, and the poster board for all classes. Presentations should be scheduled between September 5-29th to allow maximum time for your class to create their posters. Pick up will be October 17-19th.
