Call for Children’s Water Education Festival Presenters & Sponsors

The Children’s Water Education Festival teaches about water and the environment to Orange County elementary school students in grades 3, 4 and 5 annually and is the largest event of its kind in the nation.

There are 7,500 students already registered to attend this free, day-long field trip. More than 1,000 are on a wait list. With your help as a sponsor or presenter, we might be able to accommodate them all!

The two-day Festival teaches children through hands-on educational activities that fulfill requirements of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math)-based learning. Topics include water, energy, environmental protection, wildlife and natural habitats, biology, chemistry, conservation, and more. Since inception in 1996, more than 135,000 students have experienced the Festival and all it has to offer.

The award-winning event has been taught by personnel from leading companies and agencies that have included National Geographic, NASA/JPL, the Environmental Protection Agency, California Department of Water Resources, Stanford University, Discovery Science Foundation, Disneyland Resort, and various local water agencies, just to name a few. All presentations are taught to California Science Standards and are reviewed by the Orange County Department of Education.

Sponsoring the Festival provides organizations with unique opportunities to meet their strategic goals for environmental/green initiative, corporate philanthropy, community involvement, corporate responsibility, and increased positive brand recognition and exposure. Multiple sponsorship levels are available to meet organizations’ needs.

Festival is presented by the Orange County Water District, Disneyland Resort, National Water Research Institute, and the Orange County Water District Groundwater Guardian Team.
