Schuylkill Action Network launches eighth annual student contest

    For the eighth consecutive year, Schuylkill Action Network is hosting its Drinking Water Scholastic Awards contest.

    Schools around the Schuylkill watershed are invited to enter the contest by submitting their ideas for protecting drinking water quality. Students carry out an indoor lesson or outdoor project that shows how quality can be improved.
    As Schuylkill Action Network explains:

    “Programs and projects should include significant student involvement, and those with additional community participation are given special consideration. Previous winning projects among all of the categories include hands-on water quality testing of local creeks; classroom discussions of environmental stewardship with journals, observational sketches and reflective essay assignments; student participation in creating a campus rain garden; and student-produced multimedia public service announcements.”

    Entries must be submitted by March 2. Anyone in kindergarten through college can enter.
