Various posters from Native American Heritage Month

Poster contest highlights Native American heritage

Highlight Native American heritage in a poster, and you could win $2,000 and the chance to showcase your artwork in federal offices.

The Natural Resources Conservation Service, a unit of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is conducting the contest as part of Native American Heritage Month activities this November, according to a media release from the agency.

Artists should base their work on a “Water is the Essential Element” theme and title their entry (or entries) a “Big Water of Life,” a nod to the “big water” meaning of the Seminole word “Okeechobee,” the release added. Entry deadline is June 14. For more details, view the full release.
