2022 Student Poster Contest

July has been Lakes Appreciation Month for the past 24 years. This spring, we invited elementary, middle, and high school students to submit posters reflecting on how important lakes are to all of us. Submitted artwork will be a big part of NALMS’ celebrations through July.

Due to the high quality of all the entries, our volunteer judges had a tough job deciding our three winners (one per grade category). Posters were judged on creativity and originality, how well they represented Lakes Appreciation Month, and overall presentation. We are excited to share the results with you! Under the three winning posters, please take a look at all of the amazing and creative entries we received from students from all across North America.

Thank you to all of the amazing artists who sent us their posters!
