The Choctaw Nation Going Green Team is sponsoring a Water Conservation poster contest. The theme of the contest is all about educating others about water conversation and practicing it yourself. Each division winning poster will be printed as a Christmas card to be used by the Going Green Team.
The contest is open to Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma tribal members in school, grades pre-k through 12th grade. There are four divisions and each first place division winner will receive an electronic tablet.
There is no better time than now to be learning and teaching others about water conservation. As the drought continues, water conservation becomes more and more important. Getting kids involved in the process will help spread awareness and ensure that the next generation is more prepared to face growing environmental issues.
Entries must be postmarked no later than September 12th, 2012 and winners will be announced on October 15th, 2012. For rules and more information please visit the Choctaw Nation Going Green Team poster contest website. To stay up-to-date with other things going on with the Choctaw Nation Going Green Team, visit them on Facebook.
