Our kids are our future.
Clean water is vital to everyone's health. That's why we make an extra effort to include and educate our youngest citizens about water quality including stormwater pollution and ways we all can make a difference. See the links below for our Kids Contest and a printer-friendly kid's activity book.
ANNUAL KIDS VIDEO CONTEST -
Since 2015, we have partnered with BendFilm and Central Oregon Daily News / Zolo Media to give kids an opportunity to explore specific water pollution topics and create a 30-second public service advertisement.
See the 2020 Video Contest information, criteria, rules, and guidelines on our Clean Water Works Kid's Contest page.
Take a look at the most recent winners and their interpretations of the importance of clean water and stormwater pollution prevention.
They realize it's all connected! Their messages help us remember to keep our river and drinking waters clean. We ALL are the key to protecting Bend's precious water quality. Simple things go a long way... it's all connected!
