The Yuma County Conservation District (YCCD) had students from 5th and 6th grade, at Idalia, Liberty and Wray, design posters and submit for the 2022 Conservation District Youth Poster Contest. The theme for this year is Healthy Soil, Healthy Life!

The poster contest is a national competition sponsored by the National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD). The contest starts at the local level through the YCCD; winners advance to the Colorado state level, and then to the national level, where they receive recognition at NACD’s annual meeting.

The top three posters from each school in the YCCD will receive: first place $20; second place $15 and third place will receive $10. These awards will be distributed at the YCCD Annual Meeting in January. The 2022 YCCD local contest winners are as follows: Liberty 6th Graders: 1st place – Harley Vaughn 2nd place – Travis Wise 3rd place – Kilah Rojas Idalia 5th Graders: 1st place – Charliann Soehner – Grand Champion Overall 2nd place – Chloe Soehner 3rd place – Kimena Cordova Idalia 6th Graders: 1st place – Blake Hardwick – Reserve Grand Champion Overall 2nd place – Beckett Kite 3rd place – Bristol Weyerman Wray 5th Graders: 1st place – Kendree Reyna

The Grand and Reserve Grand Champions overall participated in the Colorado Association of Conservation District competition. Charliann Soehner’s poster was selected as the top poster for the State of Colorado and has been sent to participate at the annual NACD meeting that will be held in February.

The annual NACD and NACD Auxiliary Poster Contest provides students 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.
