Caring for our Watershed
Swift Current Creek Watershed Stewards are working with Agrium to bring The CARING FOR OUR WATERSHEDS program to our watershed. CARING FOR OUR WATERSHEDS is an environmental educational competition that encourages creativity and rewards students for the solutions they identify. CARING FOR OUR WATERSHEDS partners with communities to create focused solutions to local watershed issues.

Each year Agrium invites students to submit proposals that answer the question:

The program rewards the students and the schools who submit the most creative, thought-provoking and innovative ideas. Implementation funding and community mentorship is available to turn the student’s ideas into realistic solutions.

The CARING FOR OUR WATERSHEDS program asks students to submit a proposal that answers the question, “What can you do to improve your watershed?” Students must research their local watershed, identify an environmental concern and come up with a realistic solution. Community judges select the top entries to compete at a final competition. Cash awards are given to schools and students who participate. There is also implementation funding available.

Young minds often hold the key to amazing innovations that can protect and improve our watersheds. This program is Monday morning ready and fits into curriculum.

Are you a student that feels that this applies to you? Please visit the CARING FOR OUR WATERSHEDS website to get contest details.
