Rockwood Offers Grants for Water Awareness

Rockwood Water District in Portland offers up to $250 per year to schools in the service area to help fund water-related education. The purpose of the program is to supplement academic instruction by providing financial support for teachers to implement creative classroom projects that will foster greater student awareness of water and its importance. Projects or teacher training must focus on water issues. The topics may involve sources of water, quality, conservation, water-related environmental or governmental issues, etc. Consider all options, such as: classroom materials, guest speakers, field trips, teacher workshops, etc.  Also keep in mind, the project must demonstrate direct benefit to students. Creative and unique approaches to education are highly encouraged.

All K-12 educators at schools within the Rockwood Water People’s Utility District service area are eligible for the grant, regardless of discipline or subject areas taught. Teachers may apply individually or as a group; however the project must contain the correct specifications to be eligible. Applications will be selected based on the following criteria: actively engages project participants in the learning process, promotes a better understanding of water and the important role it plays, clearly defines student activities, goals, and objective, budget clearly supports project activities and demonstrates incorporative learning.
