Cool Water Program
Drinking water during the school day is a healthy alternative to sugary beverages like soda, juice, and sports drinks. Not only does drinking water keep our teeth strong and healthy, it also combats obesity and increases energy levels.
The Delta Dental of Wisconsin Foundation will provide grants to replace existing drinking fountains with new water fountain/bottle filling stations at a number of selected schools in Wisconsin. This includes installation, as well as reusable water bottles and toothbrushes for all students and staff.
Criteria for selection
- Schools need to be within a community with optimally fluoridated water
- Schools must have a free-and-reduced lunch rate of 40% or higher
- Schools can apply if they currently do not have a water fountain/bottle filling station installed
- Selection will be based on the most creative and impactful implementation plan to encourage students and staff to drink more water
The application to apply for 2019 will be available February 1 – March 31.
Selections will be made in April, with installation during the summer break.
