The fair was held May 9th and 10th, at Dixie State College from 9:30 until noon. Thirty-three presenters both local and state-wide will taught topics such as: Weather Wonders, Water Rights in Utah, Color Me A Watershed, Water Colors: The Water Cycle in Art and Sparkling Water: The story on water treatment.
“It is all about learning how important water is for us and everything around us,” said Julie Breckenridge, event coordinator and Water Conservation Manager for Washington County Water Conservancy District.
A Water Jeopardy Game is also part of the experience where classes utilize their knowledge about water facts in a competition. Additional sponsors for this event include cities and towns of Washington County, Dixie State College, and Scholzen’s Products. Local merchants Harmon’s, Costco, Albertson’s and Wal-Mart have also contributed to make this a successful educational event.
