Earth Day Poster Contest

Engineer Early is sponsoring an Earth Day 2021 Youth Poster Contest!

The theme is “Conserving Earth’s Resources.” Participants are asked to research some of earth’s natural resources, then pick one resource and create a poster that shows the natural resource and illustrates how you can be a good steward of that natural resource. To be a good steward of something is to take care of it.
