You and your students are invited to attend the
2019 Children's Water Education Festival,
March 27-28, 2019
University of California, Irvine.
Registration is open to third, fourth and fifth grade Orange County students. There is no cost to attend.
Please note: Thursday registration is full. Wednesday is still available.
The mission of the Festival is to educate students about water-related and environmental issues that correspond
with Next Genration Science Standards. The Festival teaches youth that they can make a difference in protecting
our water resources and the environment for today, tomorrow and for future generations. Year after year,
teachers return to the Festival with their classes to engage in this unique educational opportunity.
Selections are made on a first-come, first-served basis. Once we reach capacity, subsequent applicants will
be placed on a waiting list. We strongly encourage you to submit your request as soon as possible.
Confirmation and waiting list notices will be sent electronically.
Consideration to participate in the Festival is dependent on each teacher's commitment to:
- Create an account and submit an online application for his/her class by
- Read and complete the Festival
- Ensure that his/her class conducts itself in a respectful manner throughout the duration of the Festival and
complies with Festival guidelines.
Failure to comply with these requirements may result in the ineligibility of your class to attend the
Festival and any subsequent Festivals.
Registration for Thursday, March 28 has reached capacity, however, space is still available on Wednesday, March
27. Applications must be completed in full.
The Festival is a unique and invaluable learning opportunity. We do not want schools to miss out on this
exciting event due to a lack of funding for transportation expenses, so we will likely be able to subsidize
a portion of the cost of transportation for schools that are truly in need. The subsidy will depend on the
total number of requests received and the funds that are available.
Applications for bus funding will be available in January 2019. Once your school is accepted, you will be
emailed instructions on how to apply.
Thank you for your cooperation and for your support of this wonderful event.
We hope to see your class at the
Children's Water Education Festival.
