20/20: A Clear Vision for the Red River Basin
River Watch has been engaging students since 1995, making the 2020 Forum the 25th Anniversary of River Watch!
To celebrate 25 years of River Watch, students were challenged to build upon the previous 25 years of watershed education by designing programs to meet a current education programming gap; k-3rd graders or adults. Students were meant to gather together at the Alerus Center in March to celebrate 25 years and announce the winners of this year’s project.
Due to COVID-19, the in-person event was cancelled and a series of videos were released the first week in May:
2020 People’s Choice Awards
For this year’s forum, all River Watch Team members and their advisors were given the opportunity to view all project videos and flyers and were then able to vote for their favorite!
People’s Choice 1st Place – Larimore; Watershed Extravaganza
People’s Choice 2nd Place – Schroeder Middle School, Grand Forks; Trash Dash
People’s Choice 3rd Place – Hawley; The Value of the Buffalo
