The International Compost Awareness Week (ICAW) Poster Contest 2023 is now accepting applications. The International Compost Awareness Week Committee organizes a poster contest each year to select a new design for the yearly poster.
The theme of the 2023 Multinational Compost Awareness Week (ICAW) is genuinely a joint and international endeavor. They collaborated with the International Compost Alliance (ICA) this year to choose: For Healthier Soil, Healthier Food…Compost! The theme was chosen in response to a critical global issue that, sadly, every nation faces: hunger.
