2022 Nebraska Children’s Groundwater Festival

Enrichment Students Teach

2022 Nebraska Children’s Groundwater Festival

  On Tuesday May 17, 2022, the juniors and sophomores from the Meridian Enrichment group were presenters for the 33th Nebraska Children’s Groundwater Festival at the Central Community College and College Park at Grand Island, Nebraska. The Groundwater Festival promotes conservation of groundwater quality and use by providing an event for water and natural resources professionals to teach up to 1000 students in one day.

  Over 31,000 students have been educated at the festival since 1988. Each school attends six in-depth classroom activities and a stage show. Among the classroom activities was the presentation of the Meridian Enrichment group. Group members included juniors: Chase Bartels, Kailyn Paul, Amber Vinsonhaler and sophomores: Kolton Kumpf, Kymber Schwisow, Jaala Stewart and Evelyn Woitalewicz. The Meridian Enrichment group’s presentation was titled Eco-Friendly Alternative Household Cleaners. Students use activities using safe alternative cleaning solutions such as vinegar and baking soda. Which will not harm the groundwater or environment. The Meridian students presented seven, twenty-five minute sessions to fourth and fifth grade students from twenty different schools. Some of the schools came traveled over three hours to attend the festival. The Meridian Enrichment group did a very good job presenting. They represented Meridian Public School with class. They were complimented on their presentation by all of the teachers. This says a lot about their character and maturity. Congrats on a job well done!
