Communication and Outreach Committee

The Communication and Outreach Committee (COC) develops and supports internal and external communication, K-12 student education and public outreach directed at PNCWA members, educators, students, the general public, media and other water resource stakeholders for effective engagement in water environment activities and issues.

Our key activities include an annual Public Communications Camp, coordination of the U.S. Stockholm Junior Water Prize and Adopt-a-School grant programs, attendance at local science teacher conferences, and phased implementation of the Strategic Communications Recommendations.

News & Highlights

Adopt-a-School 2020 Grant Cycle is Open, Deadline Is Jan 21.

Our watersheds are healthier than they’ve been in generations, but more work is needed to protect our valuable resource. The Adopt-a-School program was established to support water science education, involvement and restoration activities by 4th–12th grade students in Oregon, Washington and Idaho. PNCWA supports any school curriculum that is water-related with elements of stormwater and wastewater instruction. The grant requires a connection with a local wastewater and/or stormwater professional in the form of a treatment facility tour or classroom presentation. Applications are due January 21, 2020 for the 2020 calendar year.
