Lincoln County students invited to participate in annual Conservation Contest
Students and educators from Lincoln County Schools, whether they be public, private, or homeschooled, are invited to participate in the Annual Conservation Contest hosted by the Lincoln County Conservation Program. The Conservation Contest encourages students to submit posters or write and perform speeches that illustrate the conservation theme of the year. For 2024, the Conservation Contest theme is “May the Forest be With You, Always.”
The Conservation contest is an excellent opportunity for students to expand their appreciation for the environment and conservation and to become involved with numerous Wisconsin Academic Standards. Educators that have been involved with the contest found this connection to standards helpful and have enjoyed the opportunity to promote conservation within the classroom.
Students who are in grade K-12 are eligible to enter into the Poster portion of the competition, and students who are in grades 5-12 are eligible to enter into the Speaking portion of the competition (contest divisions are created by grade ex. K-1, 2-3, etc.). First place entries from each division will advance on to the area contest which includes nine counties. From there, there is the possibility to advance on to a state contest and even a national contest.
