SEVEN LIVERMORE JOINT UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT STUDENTS RECEIVE “ONE WATER AWARDS”
LIVERMORE, CA (March 16, 2023) - Seven Livermore students received special recognition from their local water agencies at last week’s Livermore Joint Unified School District (LVJUSD) Science Odyssey event for highlighting water in their science projects.
The City of Livermore has sponsored the “One Water Awards” for the past eight years at this 1st – 12th-grade district-wide science fair. Zone 7 Water Agency (Zone 7) became a cosponsor in 2020 and California Water Service (Cal Water) became a cosponsor in 2022.
These awards are for students who completed exceptional science projects related to drinking water, recycled water, wastewater, or stormwater topics. Livermore’s water agencies hope that these projects help foster students’ understanding and appreciation of our most important resource – water.
