Help wanted!

The 2019 Iowa Children’s Water Festival is May 9, 2019, at the Des Moines Area Community College Campus in Ankeny. 

The festival is a free educational event that provides fifth-grade classes from across Iowa with the opportunity to learn about the importance of water in their daily lives through presentations, hands-on activities, exhibits, games, and entertainment.

The festival committee is looking for individuals who would be willing to volunteer, including classroom presenters and exhibitors. The event is a great community outreach activity.

For Classroom Presenters: Presenters will be scheduled for 4-6 sessions, each session is 30 minutes with a 15-minute break in between sessions for presentation reset and student travel.
