Caring for Our Watersheds in The Classroom

Bookmark and Share

This program gets junior and senior high school students to answer an important question: what can I do to help improve my watershed?

The Battle River Watershed Alliance offers schools a free presentation introducing students to their watershed and to the contest. Students work individually or in small groups to submit a 1000-word proposal answering the above question, with finalists being invited to give a 5 minute presentation at our awards ceremony. Winning entries receive up to $1000 for themselves and a matching award for their school. Everyone who enters receives a prize.

The Balle River Watershed Alliance is committed to helping teachers integrate the contest into the classroom in a way which benefits the teachers and student learning.  From an in class presentation to long term mentoring for the students and even helping implement the projects this contest helps your students help the watershed!  This is the 6th year of the Caring For Our Watersheds contest in central Alberta; it has been so sucessful that it won a 2011 Emerald Award and is now also offered across North America and internationally!
