* Grant awarded for the Peterborough Children’s Water Festival
The Peterborough Children’s Water Festival helps shape children’s attitudes about the importance of water and its use, consumption, and protection. This free water education event is geared toward students in grades 2-5. Students learn to take care of water resources for the future through the delivery of water-related messaging in upward of 35 interactive and hands-on activity centres. A dedicated team of ambitious volunteers deliver the festival. While the PCWF is geared toward elementary students, many more individuals are influenced by the messages delivered at the PCWF, such as high school student volunteers who help deliver education, and community volunteers who help the festival run smoothly.
