2015 "Got Waste?" Art Contest

Calling all kids, K-6!

We need you to teach adults how to find out where to get rid of their hazardous waste. It's really quite simple: all they need to do is visit

You can draw a poster, write a poem, make a video, sing a song -- the options are limitless! Just teach us where to properly dump our waste and you can earn first place!

Winners will have their work published online and on the air with KSPS Public Television. 



Congratulations to our 2014 'Save Our Aquifer' Multimedia Contest Winners!

KSPS and Spokane Aquifer Joint Board present Aquifer Workshops

Support from the Spokane Aquifer Joint Board provides KSPS with the resources to educate our community and our classrooms on ways to preserve the aquifer. The popular workshops, presented by Kristen Zimmer, teach young students about our most precious regional resource: the Spokane Valley - Rathdrum Prairie aquifer. Children are presented with hands-on, inquiry based lessons about how to keep the aquifer clean and sustainable.  

Educators — To schedule an Aquifer Workshop for your classroom, plaese contact Kristen Zimmertoday.
