First, second, and third place winners, as well as teachers and immediate families, will be recognized at an awards ceremony at 11 a.m. Friday, April 25, at the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center in Washburn. Following a noon luncheon, everyone will receive free admission to the Lewis and Clark Fort Mandan Interpretive Center. There will be educational programs held for the participants in the afternoon.

KNDC is the largest and longest running poster contest in the state. More than 11,000 students learned about protecting the environment by keeping North Dakota clean for the people who live and visit here. Grades 1-8 and special needs created posters reflecting the need to keep water clean, reduce waste, prevent wildfires, recycle, plant trees, create wildlife habitat, and explore our beautiful state. All first place state winners receive a gold medallion, certificate, and $100 cash award. First place winners get their poster turned into a billboard and placed along a major transportation route near their hometown by Newman Outdoor Advertising. Second and third place winners receive a silver or bronze medallion, certificate, and $75 or $50 cash award. All winners will have their photo taken with First Lady Betsy Dalrymple, State Superintendent Kirsten Baesler, and their teacher at the awards ceremony.
