Student’s ideas have value and CARING FOR OUR WATERSHEDS is proud to support them as they turn theoretical ideas into realistic solutions.
All students are encouraged to implement their ideas in their local watersheds.
Nutrien sponsors implementation money for participating schools, subject to availability (up to $10,000 USD for Virginia). Implementation money is distributed on a first-come first-serve basis, and schools are encouraged to seek outside funding as appropriate.
To receive funding for project implementation from CARING FOR OUR WATERSHEDS, a project description, budget, timeline and proof of sponsorship must be received by the Program Coordinator by September 31 of the calendar year the finalist competed. A contract will be signed by participating students to use the money for the intended purpose.
Contact your local Program Coordinator for more information.
