The North Carolina Association of Soil and Water Conservation Districts sponsors poster, essay, public speaking, computer generated slide show, and computer generated poster contests at District, Area and State levels.
These contests provide students in third through ninth grades opportunities to become aware of and share their concerns for soil and water conservation. Bladen Soil and Water Conservation District is pleased to announce this year’s District first and second place winners.
