Project Spotlight: Global Water Challenge

The Global Water Challenge gives Denver-based middle school students the opportunity to research and study water issues locally and globally. The challenge unfolds in three steps throughout the school year.

Collaborate

Students work in small groups to research their selected water issues, collaborate, and problem‐solve.

Explore

Students use teacher‐led class time to explore their topics in greater depth, to prepare and perfect water-themed skits for competition day.

Present

On competition day, students interact with numerous volunteer judge panels and receive feedback on their skit.

Since its inception, over 17,000 students and 100 middle schools have participated in the Global Water Challenge.
