Started in 1994, the Children’s Clean Water Festival has engaged more than 31,000 students in a day of learning and fun that includes more than 40 hands-on, water-focused activities, classroom presentations, and stage shows.
The goal of the Festival is to teach kids that they are capable of having real, long-lasting, positive impacts on water resources, and to equip them with the information they need to do that in a fun and engaging way.
A committee of partnering agencies provide financial and staff time to coordinate the Festival, and day-of support comes from more than 125 classroom presenters, exhibitors, and community volunteers.
