Presenters are the brains behind the Children’s Water Festival. Presenters include professionals from federal, state, and local government agencies, natural resource groups, universities, museums, businesses, and community members. They are willing to volunteer their time to spend a day educating fourth and fifth-grade students about the importance of water and how their work is helping to ensure a healthy water supply.

You don’t need to be a professional educator to be a great presenter.
- Presentation: Each presenter will develop, coordinate, and present a 20-minute presentation for a group of 20 to 30 students. This presentation will be offered up to seven different classes throughout the day. We want the students and teachers to be excited to learn about water, agriculture, and our environment so presentations that are hands-on and involve all students are best. Presenters can choose a presentation topic, or we can offer ideas. We ask that a summary of the presentation be provided to the festival committee so that we can give teachers a heads-up on content.
- Exhibitor: All students will have time to explore the Exhibit Hall where we have 10 to 15 booths set up for students to walk around and interact with people to spark their interest and gain some quick knowledge. Booths can be games or interactive displays. The Festival provides each exhibitor with a six-foot table and 2-chairs. Electricity, water, and additional tables are available on request.
If you have handouts for students or teachers, get them to us 2-weeks in advance and we will add them to the teacher’s resource bags. Teachers will receive their bag at the end of the day. Alternatively you can send a hyperlink to the resource to the Festival Event Coordinator and will be added to the teacher resource area of the Children’s Water Festival web page.
If you would like suggestions or help with your exhibit or presentation, call Tammy at 970-330-4540 or email TRusch@ccwcd.org.
