Over 800 4th grade students in the North Plains experienced a one-of-a-kind educational extravaganza during the Save the Planet’s Water Festivals in Dumas, Dalhart and Perryton. From water-soaked relay races to an awe-inspiring magic show, a variety of activities were offered to help students understand our water resources and ways that they can protect and conserve them.

Water user groups must share a common water source as they try to get water into their team’s bucket.
