14th Annual Water Festival: Gadsden State Community College

The 14th annual Etowah County Water Festival took place today on the Gadsden Campus of Gadsden State Community College. More than 1,400 fourth-graders from Etowah County schools attended the fun and innovative event. The festival is designed to educate students and their families about all aspects of groundwater. City of Gadsden Chief Engineering Aide Jeramy Ward says the day is about teaching children to protect our streams and lakes. Students and teachers participated in three 30-minute hands-on activities throughout the day where they learned about natural resources and general environmental awareness. The students also attended a magic show. Ward added that today’s activities re-enforce the value of natural water systems and how chemicals, debris, and trash can damage the water cycle. All attendees and volunteers received a free Water Festival t-shirt which features the winning design by Dylan Wullimann, a fourth-grade student of Ms. Michelle Pierce at Eura Brown Elementary School.
