Education Contests

Annually, the NC Association of Soil and Water Conservation Districts (NCASWCD) hosts themed contests for school-aged children on the topic of soil and water conservation. Each district decides which contests they will offer locally to area students. District contest winners advance to the area competition and area contest winners advance to the state competition. Prizes vary.
