The Greenbrier Valley Conservation District is pleased to announce the winners of its 2016 Conservation Poster Contest. The theme for 2016, set by the National Association of Conservation Districts, was “We All Need Trees.” A team of judges from NRCS judged the posters for conservation message, visual effectiveness, originality and universal appeal.
Hundreds of entries were received from students all over the district, ranging in age from Kindergarten to 12th grade. First place in each age group was submitted to the state level contest sponsored by the West Virginia Association of Conservation Districts. Congratulations to all our winners!
