TSWCD accepting poster contest entries

Entries will be taken from all Mathews, Gloucester and Middlesex youth in grades K-12. The contest starts at the local level, but winners advance to the state and national levels, with various prizes awarded along the way.

Poster size must be 14” x 22” and any media may be used to create a flat or two-dimensional effect. For complete rules and entry forms, contact the Tidewater Soil and Water Conservation District office at 804-693-3562 ext. 5 or visit
