The award-winning program you know and love, the Children's Water Education Festival (Festival), returns in a virtual format April 25-29, 2022.

The award-winning Festival presents a unique opportunity to educate third, fourth and fifth grade Orange County students about the environment. Through a series of interactive and immersive live and on-demand presentations taught by well-known and respected experts and organizations, students learn about a variety of environmental subjects.

Registration is now open. Interested teachers and presenters are invited to click on the menu bars above to learn more and submit an application. It is advised you complete your application as soon as possible.

Take a look at last year's event recap video (previously called the Youth Environmental Summit).

The Festival is provided at no cost to Orange County schools. Hosting an event of this magnitude is made possible by many generous sponsors and presenters. We are proud to work with such committed organizations each year.
