It also highlights the educational outreach efforts of conservation districts and their state associations, auxiliaries and agencies. The contest follows the annual stewardship theme developed and sponsored by the National Association of Conservation Districts.

The 2021 theme, “Healthy Forests = Healthy Communities” reminds us that trees and forests play a vital role in maintaining the health of our local and global ecosystem. For more information and educational resources, visit
