The Water Conservation Poster Contest starts at the district level; winners advance to the state level, and then to the national level, where they receive recognition at the NACD’s annual meeting.
“I entered the contest because it was a class assignment, but I'm really glad I did it,” said Perkins. “I chose to do a superhero because superheroes fight crime, so I thought they could fight to save water. I had the superhero water kicking off the sink.”
The annual National Association of Conservation Districts and National Association of Conservation Districts Auxiliary 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 and their state conservation associations, auxiliaries, and agencies to protect and enhance natural resources.
“We are so proud of Tanner Perkins for the hard work he put into the Water Conservation Poster Contest for the West Desert Basin,” said Gina Ruiz, Stansbury Park Elementary School principal. “His work was chosen out of 500 entries throughout the state of Utah. Congratulations Tanner-You are a Superstar!"
