River of Words

Mile High Water Talk

River of Words is a poetry and art competition for students grades K–12 throughout Colorado. The theme for the contest is watersheds and the environment, and the competition is designed to help youth explore the natural and cultural history of the place they live, and to express what they discover in poetry and visual art.

Denver Water has sponsored the River of Words competition for three years. In a forward for the 2011 Student Literary Awards Anthology, Denver Water CEO Jim Lochhead wrote: “… getting students excited about water is no easy task, and it takes a collaborative effort from the entire water community. Our partnership with River of Words allows Denver Water’s Youth Education program to branch out from the sciences, where our program traditionally has had its largest footprint, and bring a water education focus into literacy and the arts.”
