International Compost Awareness Week 2019 Poster Contest

International Compost Awareness Week’s Committee invites you to get involved in ICAW 2019 and participate in the 17th Annual Poster Contest.

The ICAW 2019 Poster Contest theme is: Cool the Climate – Compost!

The successful poster winner will receive a $500 prize and the winning poster will be used to promote International Compost Awareness Week, 5—11 May, 2019.

The 2019 ICAW theme recognizes the connection between soil health and the climate. Soil plays an important role in our environment. Healthy soil is at the heart of planetary, agricultural and human health. This year’s theme highlights that soil management practices with compost is key to soil health and migrating climate change. By composting, we return nutrients to the soil, help capture carbon from the atmosphere, resist drought and disease and provide fresh air.

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 2019 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.

Close to 300 people, age ten and above from over 30 countries, entered last year’s contest.
