International Compost Awareness Week ICAW Poster Contest 2018 now is over!
The International Compost Awareness Week Committee invites you to get involved in ICAW 2018 looking for anyone interested in participating in their 16th Annual Poster Contest, this year themed ’Compost! Building a Better Future’.
The US Composting Council is inviting anyone who wishes to share their artistic creativity to partecipate in its International Compost Awareness Week this year’s theme "Compost! Building a Better Future".
Compost is produced from the recycling of organic materials to create a valuable soil amendment. When incorporated into the soil, it provides plants with essential nutrients, protects against the threat of erosion, and increases soil health without the use of chemicals. It also reduces water pollution.
The compost is good for plants, people and our planet. Composting is good for the environment and for our future, no matter where you live! Through composting, we keep organic matter out of landfills, feed and improve soil health and minimize chemical use. Together we can create a global conservation plan that converts organics wastes into resources.
Whether or not you have celebrated or been involved in ICAW in the past, you are invited to participate also this year.
There are three contest divisions:
• grades 3-7,
• grades 8-12,
• college – adult.
The poster must include the words "International Compost Awareness Week May 6 – 12, 2018" and images of the poster should be based on compost use or address the benefits of recycling organic residuals. Images should demonstrate that compost is not limited to a specific use, but has many uses, especially in relation to healthy soil, which provides many benefits.
