Smokey Bear/Woodsy Owl Contest

This is a National Poster Contest for kids in 1st – 5th Grade sponsored by National Garden Clubs and in collaboration with the US Forestry Services.


Info for the upcoming 2022 contest should be sent out to the State Chairmen by September 2021. 


Posters must be sponsored by a local garden club and submitted to the State Chairman in January 2022.  The State Chairman will judge the entries and send the first-place entry for each grade to the Regional Chairman.  The Regional will judge all entries received from our seven states and will submit the first-place winner to compete in the National competition.  


Regional winners are announced during the National Convention in May.
