This year over 160 students submitted Caring for our Watersheds written proposals outlining their project idea to help improve their watershed. Of those, ten student groups from across central and northern Alberta have been selected to be finalists. They will have 5 minutes to present their ideas to the judges and the audience at this final competition.
