Dan Wolz Clean Water Education Grant

Dan Wolz Clean Water Education Grant Information

The Michigan Water Environment Association (MWEA) partners with the Michigan Science Teachers Association (MSTA) to identify teachers who have a clean water project and are in need of financial assistance to execute the project within a curriculum focused on water environment issues. Determination of the award recipient will be made in November. This award will be presented at the 2024 MSTA Annual Conference. This year, the award will be given to one K-12 MSTA science teacher.

The Dan Wolz Clean Water Education Grant was established in 2006 to heighten public awareness of the career opportunities our industry has to offer, and to improve the quality and quantity of Clean Water community education in Michigan's public schools. Dan Wolz was a true environmental steward of the earth. Thus, in recognition of the passion Dan had for education, this award continues to reach hundreds of Michigan students.
