Default Hundreds of 4TH Graders Selected for WSSC’s 7th Annual Children’s Water Festival



Hundreds of 4TH Graders Selected to Participate in
WSSC’S 7th Annual Children’s Water Festival


Elementary Schools in Montgomery, Prince George’s Counties Are Eligible for Honor

Laurel (January 3, 2012): In a lottery-style drawing held at the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission (WSSC) headquarters, eight schools from Montgomery and Prince George’s counties were selected to participate in the 7th Annual Children’s Water Festival to take place May 9 and 10, 2012 at WSSC’s Brighton Dam facility in Brookeville, Maryland. Approximately 600 4th graders will spend a day learning about water. The drawing took place at the monthly Commission meeting in December.

Elementary schools from across Montgomery and Prince George’s counties are eligible to enter their fourth grade classes in the lottery. The winners in the drawing, selected by WSSC Commission Chair Dr. Roscoe M. Moore, Jr. (Montgomery County) and Vice-Chair Christopher Lawson (Prince George’s County) are:

From Montgomery County: Broad Acres Elementary School in Bethesda, Garrett Park Elementary School in Bethesda; Laytonsville Elementary School in Laytonsville; and The Lourie Center School of the Reginald S. Lourie Center in Rockville.

From Prince George’s County: Capitol Heights Elementary School in Capitol Heights; Carmody Hills Elementary School in Capitol Heights; Gladys Noon Spellman Elementary School in Cheverly; and Princeton Elementary School in Suitland.

The Children’s Water Festival gives students the chance to take part in hands-on learning activities about water, wetlands, human health, aquatic life and more. The festival coincides with “National Drinking Water Week” and provides the students with a chance to dive into the world of water education and soak up an exciting, interactive lesson about life’s most precious resource.

“We look to inspire a next generation of water and wastewater engineers and a generation of environmental stewards. The water festival provides a fun way for students to learn important lessons on the roles they play in protecting our environment,” said WSSC General Manager Jerry N. Johnson.

“I am pleased that the program remains so successful going into our 7th year,” said WSSC Customer Outreach Coordinator Angela Ballard - Landers. “Teaching students about water and the environment in a way that the kids love, the schools love and that our employees love working on is a win-win for everyone!”
