.Supervisors with the Duval Soil and Water Conservation District are excited to serve as hosts of the 2018 Regional (Area II) Speech and Poster Contest! The Association of Florida Conservation Districts hosts 4 regional contests each year with winning district contestants. This year's topic is Healthy Soils are Full of Life. The winner of each of the four regional contests will go on to the Florida Statewide competition in June.
The Duval County "Area II" Speech and Poster Contest will be held at Riverside North on April 18 from 4:00 - 5:00 p.m. Participating speech contestants should review the rules and submit their speech by the April 14 deadline. Participants in both the speech and poster contest should complete the registration. For poster contestants, your poster should be delivered to the event no later than 4:00 p.m. when the judging will commence, either personally or from your local District Supervisor. See the local guidelines and Judges Scorecard for categories K-12.
Winners for both contests will be announced at 5:00 p.m. on April 18. Snacks and drinks will be provided. Parents should feel free to register to join us so that we may have a head count, but this is not required.
Congrats to all of the contestants!
