2011 Conservation Awards Essay Contest
2011 Texas Conservation Awards
Each year, the Texas State Soil and Water Conservation Board and the Association of Texas Soil and Water Conservation Districts sponsor the Texas Conservation Awards Program to recognize and honor those who dedicate themselves and their talents to the conservation and wise use of renewable natural resources.
The conservation awards program provides competition and incentives to expand and improve conservation efforts, resource development, and increase the wise utilization of renewable natural resources. As a result, soil and water conservation districts, and both rural and urban citizens of Texas are benefited.
The Essay Contest is open to boys and girls in two age categories - ages 13 and under, and ages 14 to 18 years. The contest is designed to express to students the importance of soil and water resources and how they are linked to providing food and clean water.
The theme of the 2011 Essay Contest is “Why Soil and Water Conservation Is Important To My Future”
The essays will be judged on the local district level with winners sent to the area level. The state winner will be selected from the five area winners.
For more information, see the Essay Contest entry form (PDF).
