Water Festival Squeezes in Between Snow Storms

The annual Water Festival was held at Dakota College at Bottineau on April 20 & 21. In spite of the historic spring storm immediately prior to the date and the second coming quickly on its heels, 324 students from seven schools stomped through snow to attend educational sessions like Water Olympics, Curb the Spread, What is a Watershed? and many more.

In sharp contrast, the approximately 90 students from three schools who attended Water Festival in Drake on May 12 only had to deal with a few drops of rain. Whether it was frozen or liquid, all 400+ students learned a lot about water!

Save the date! 

Water Festival 2023 will be April 19 & 20 at DCB and May 11 in Drake.
