Denver Metro Water Festival

 

 

In 2014, Platte Canyon and other Suburban Distributors of Denver Water, Denver Water, and the One World One Water Center at Metro State University of Denver came together to host the first annual Denver Metro Water Festival. The water festival is designed to provide balanced water-related education to sixth graders in a fun environment where they can learn to think differently about water.

 

The festival presents a unique opportunity for water professionals from around Colorado to offer engaging, hands-on lessons and activities to:

 

·       Encourage students to take an active role in water conservation.

 

·       Provide students with the tools they need to bring wise water use to their communities.

 

·       Complement classroom water units by addressing Colorado Academic Standards, particularly for science.

 

The festival is provided at no cost to District-area schools and transportation to and from the schools are provided.

 

This year’s festival was May 17th and is closed to applicants. However, plans are already underway for the 2017 Water Festival which will also be held in May. “Save the Date” postcards will be mailed to every sixth-grade teacher in this fall and applications to attend the Festival will open on February 1, 2017. Interested teachers can learn more and submit an application by clicking here. Space is limited and the event fills quickly, so complete your application as early as possible.

 

An event of this magnitude is only made possible by many generous sponsors, presenters and dedicated volunteers. Please contact Alyssa Quinn at the District office at 303-979-2333 if you are interested in participating in next year’s Water Festival or you can visit the Denver Metro Water Festival webpage here or email them here.
