Earth Day Patch Contest


In an effort to foster a cleaner and healthier state, the North Dakota Game and Fish Department sponsors an annual contest to design a North Dakota Earth Day patch.

Latest Winning Design

Winners - Three winners are chosen from the three age categories and a grand prize patch design is then chosen from those three winning designs.

  • Age Categories:
    • 6-9
    • 10-13
    • 14-18

Prizes - The winners of each category receive 10X42 binoculars. The grand prize design is used on a patch given out to members of school groups, Girls Scouts, Boy Scouts and 4-H clubs that participate in Earth Day cleanup projects in North Dakota during the spring and summer, and is recognized in the North Dakota OUTDOORS magazine.


Contestants are urged to get their youth organizations involved in Earth Day cleanup projects on state-owned or managed lands, parks and other community outdoor facilities. Have fun and good luck!
