The Fourth Annual Cal Water H2O Challenge

The Cal Water H2O Challenge is a project-based competition that is complementary to Next Generation Science Standards. By participating in the program, teachers can work with their students to develop and implement solutions for community-based water issues. Teachers will also receive technical and monetary support via educational resources and consultants throughout the competition. 

Register your classroom by January 31st, 2018 to be entered into a drawing to win one of 30 (1/30) $250 classroom grants. The grand-prize winners of the Challenge will win a $3,500 classroom grant and an overnight field trip to the Santa Monica Mountains with NatureBridge for an outdoor, science-education experience. Other winning classes will receive classroom grants along with Cal Water prize packs. 

Watch last year's grand prize winner, Ms Emily Akimoto's fifth-grade classroom from Sierra View Elementary in Chico, California, explain their inspiration for their project, the water quality disaster in Flint, MI, here.
