Abstract or Description: 
The Make a Splash with Project WET Arizona Water Festival program is in its ninth year and served 12 communities in the 2008-2009 school year. The program trained 622 volunteers to deliver engaging water education to 6,924 fourth graders and their 313 teachers. With the support of the Bureau of Reclamation, Arizona Project WET has conducted a summative evaluation, and is able to use that information to further increase the effectiveness of the program while simultaneously documenting successes in student learning and community engagement in water education.
