The MSWCD is proud to announce new monetary gifts awards:
Youth Conservationist of the Year awarded to any Marion County student, who accumulates the most participation points for competing in our contests and volunteering at our events. More points will be given to a student who wins a contest overall than just participating in one.
Enviromental Educator of the Year awarded to any Marion County teacher, who accumulates the most student participation in our contests, for which their students can participate in, as well as, having the most students volunteer at our events. Teachers who have a student win an overall event will receive more points to their overall score.
Earth Team Volunteer of the Year awarded to any volunteer who accumulates the most volunteer hours this year. NRCS, MSWCD Board Members, MSWCD Associates, and MSWCD staff are exempt from winning.
We are looking forward to another GREAT contest year!MSWCD is proud to partner with the Public Education Foundation of Marion County (PEFMC) to offer graduating seniors an opportunity at a $1,000 scholarship.
