Leading the Way in Environmental Education

Project Learning Tree (PLT) is an award-winning environmental education program designed for all educators working with students in Pre-K through 12th grade. Since its introduction in the early 1970’s, PLT has been recognized as a leading environmental education program. Through hands-on, interdisciplinary activities, PLT provides students with opportunities to investigate environmental issues and encourages them to make informed, responsible decisions.

Now is a perfect time to participate in National Association of Conservation Districts Poster and Photo Contest!

The annual National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD) Poster Contest provides students from kindergarten through 12th grade the chance to have their art displayed as part of a national conservation outreach initiative. Each year, the winning posters reflect NACD’s annual Stewardship theme and highlight the work of Conservation Districts to protect and enhance natural resources. This year’s theme is “Where would we BEE without Pollinators”.

The NACD Photo Contest is open to all amateur photographers who reside in Georgia. Contestants are allowed to enter as many as five photos each year that each fit into one of the following four categories:
Conservation Practices, Close-up Conservation, Conservation in Action, Agriculture and Conservation Across Georgia. One winner will be selected for each category and age division (adults are ages 19 and older).

Both contests start at the local Conservation District level; winners advance to the state competition where they will receive recognition and a cash prize at GACD’s Annual Meeting. State level winning photos will be on display at the State USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) office in Athens, GA and used in future publications. Winners at the state level will move on to the national competition.

Posters and photos are due by May 31, 2020.

If you are interested in participating, visit www.gacd.us/education or contact your local Conservation District.
