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 previous contest winners and a printer-friendly kid's activity book.
ANNUAL KID'S VIDEO CONTEST -
Since 2015, we have partnered with BendFilm and Zolo Media to give kids an opportunity to explore specific water pollution topics and create a 30-second public service advertisement.
Take a look at the most recent winners and relish in their interpretation of the importance of clean water and stormwater pollution prevention.
They realize it's all connects! 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!
