The North Carolina Association of Soil & Water Conservation Districts is an Association established to facilitate the advancement of local Soil & Water Conservation Districts and their programs. Most of these programs are educational in nature. The Association reaches over 85,000 school children each year with education programs. There is a 3rd grade poster contest, 4th grade poster contest, 5th grade poster contest, 6th grade poster contest, 6th grade electronic slide show competition, 6th grade essay contest, 7th grade speech contest, 8th grade speech contest, 9th grade electronic poster contest. In addition there is a middle school Envirothon contest and a high school Envirothon contest. These educational contests go from 3rd grade to 12th grade. There is also a summer Resource Conservation Workshop for high school students where they study: soils, forestry, wildlife, wetlands, current issues, energy and related resource areas. There are also environmental field days held by about 50 of these local Districts where they help to educate elementary and middle school students on natural resources topics. some of these local Districts also do classroom presentations on soil and water resources. some of these programs probably get some 2nd grade students.
