Native Plant Poster Contest for all 6th-8th grade students

A few days ago, Governor Gordon signed a proclamation recognizing April 2024 as Wyoming Native Plant Month (attached). The proclamation encourages "everyone in Wyoming to participate in the recognition and celebration of the importance of native plants to Wyoming’s rich biological heritage ……by planting native trees and flowers in their yards, removing non-native invasive plants from their communities, and educating themselves about the many benefits of native plants." 


This year, the Wyoming Native Plant Society is sponsoring a Native Plant Poster Contest for all 6th-8th grade students. The theme of the contest is "Help Wildlife: Grow Native Plants" encouraging students to learn and creatively illustrate how native plants are essential to Wyoming's wildlife. Three students and their teachers will each receive a $250 cash prize. Entries must be postmarked by April 2, 2024. The contest details and entry requirements can be found in the attached flyer. See also:
