Community-based learning since 2003
Global Water Challenge
The Global Water Challenge (GWC) competition addresses developing world and local water and sanitation issues through a student team-based competition at middle schools throughout the Denver Metro area. Global Water Challenge assists participating middle school teachers with curriculum regarding key developing world issues. The challenge has been graciously funded, in part, by the Denver Rotary Club.
Since its inception in 2003, the Global Water Challenge has served about 17,000 students with participation from over 100 middle schools. Over 100 teachers, 50 mentors, and 200 judges have been involved in the program. Judges include physicians, health administrators, graduate and undergraduate students, engineers, environmentalists, water and sanitation experts, and artists.
