Global Water Challenge
Denver, Colorado
The Global Water Challenge was started in 2003 and is one of Global Health Connections’ original projects. The Global Water Challenge gives Denver-based middle school students the opportunity to research and study water issues locally and globally. Students work in small groups to research their selected water issues, collaborate, and problem‐solve. Students use teacher‐led class time to explore their topics in greater depth, to prepare and perfect water-themed skits in preparation for competition day.
