World Water Day - March 18, 2023

LCC and our Champlain Basin Education Initiative (CBEI) partners invite K-12 educators throughout the Basin to celebrate World Water Day with us! Enter student work in our contest by March 8, 2023 to raise awareness of water and be entered into the prize pool for some great educational prizes. Student work will be publicly displayed at a World Water Day event at the Champlain Centre Mall on March 18. Students can take inspiration from water -- Lake Champlain, brooks, rivers, ponds, oceans, other US and world waterways  -- and share their water stories through writing, art, photography, or videography. Read on for details on how to enter.
