Thank you for your interest in participating in the Children’s Clean Water Festival!
About the Festival
The Festival is a free, half-day environmental education event that engages fourth-grade students from throughout the Portland, Oregon metro area. The 2023 Festival will be held on Tuesday, April 25 at PCC Sylvania. Each year, students from approximately 20-25 schools come to a college campus for a day of learning and fun. The Festival’s success is due in large part by the entertaining and informative exhibits and presentations that organizations like yours provide during the event.
Sounds like a great opportunity! How can I get involved?
- Exhibitors bring their educational displays, hands-on activities, and water-related messages and set up shop in the Festival exhibit hall. Classes are in the exhibit hall for 30 minutes, and students can visit the exhibits of their choice. (Exhibitor give-away items should be educational. Please no whistles or other noise-making giveaways.)
- Classroom Presenters teach a 30 minute, water-focused class that is interactive, engaging, and fun (past topics include water quality, fish habitat, wetlands, watersheds, storm water, and water conservation). Each classroom presenter will teach 3 sessions and reach 100 students during the day.
