2020 Northwoods' Invasive Species Poster Contest

 

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak we’ve had to make a few changes, but hope these changes create an easier way to participate in our contest! 

  1. If students have already completed posters, and you have those in your possession, please send those to:  Oneida County Land & Water Conservation Dept., 1 South Oneida Ave., P.O. Box 400, Rhinelander, WI  54501. 
  2. If you have dropped off your posters at a drop-off location, and your name is not listed below, please contact us at msadauskas@co.oneida.wi.us
  3. We will start accepting photos of posters.  In this way, students can easily participate from home.  Photos should be emailed to msadauskas@co.oneida.wi.us.  When taking a photo of the poster, please fill the frame, and make sure it is clear.  This is extremely important.  Additionally, a photo of the entry form must be sent along with the poster entry.
