Coloring Contest

The Charles Soil Conservation District hosts a coloring contest every spring in association with the Maryland Association of Soil Conservation Districts (MASCD). The coloring contest is open to all elementary school students throughout the county. We encourage elementary schools within Charles County to participate in the contest.
