Lois B. Krieger Water Project Grants for Educators accepting applications - Deadline: November 10
Riverside, CA – Western Municipal Water District (Western) announces a call for applications for the 2017-2018 Lois B. Krieger Water Project Grants for Educators. Eligible teachers in Riverside County can apply to receive up to $1,000 in classroom funding for water-related projects.
“Each year, Western recognizes teachers in Riverside County and provides them with resources to make water education available to students – the future water leaders - in our service area,” shared Western’s General Manager John Rossi. “It is through the dedication and creativity of our local educators that students are able to learn about water and how to use it wisely.”
Inspired and named after local water leader Lois B. Krieger for her immense accomplishments in the water industry, the grant provides resources to teachers looking to implement a water-related lesson that would otherwise not be possible.
To qualify for the grant, project proposals must pertain to lessons on the water systems and its direct impact in communities. Teachers in all areas of study, from science to the arts, are eligible for the grant. The deadline is Nov. 10.
Funding for the grants is provided by Western, and grants are open to both private and public schools K-12 in the Alvord, Norco, Corona, Jurupa, Lake Elsinore, Murrieta, Riverside and Val Verde school districts.
