International Compost Awareness Week’s Committee invites you to get involved in ICAW 2020 and participate in the 18th Annual Poster Contest.
The ICAW 2019 Poster Contest theme is: Soil Loves Compost.
The successful poster winner will receive a $500 prize and the winning poster will be used to promote International Compost Awareness Week, 3—9 May, 2020.
This year’s theme is based on the idea that Soil Loves Compost because compost feeds soil! Soil is alive and needs nourishment to be healthy. With healthy soil you grow healthy plants. Soil Loves Compost because it provides food and nutrients for living microbes that make up healthy soil. Without compost we would have few ways to enrich and restore soil. Compost keeps soil strong and healthy by reusing and recycling organic materials in a “zero waste” cycle. Compost keeps our soil happy and it keeps our planet healthy. Soil Loves Compost!
There are three (3) contest divisions: grades 3-7, grades 8-12, and college – adult. The best from each division will be entered into the final contest.
The concept and images of the poster should be based on “compostuse” or address the “benefits of recycling organic residuals”.
The poster contest winner will have his/her poster reproduced and distributed to thousands in USA. It will be the official 2020 International Compost Awareness Week poster and featured on the CCREF website, as well as on the US Composting Council website.
Entries are limited to one submission per artist.
