Rethink Your Drink: Choose Water!
The Delta Dental Foundation launched its Rethink Your Drink: Water’s Cool at School program in Indiana this year, to help encourage students to drink more water during the day.
The application submission period is currently closed.
Water’s cool at school!
Providing access to drinking water throughout the school day gives students a healthy alternative to sugary drinks like soda pop and sports/juice drinks. Drinking plenty of water can help combat obesity, increase energy levels and may improve students’ cognitive functions. Further, if fluoridated, drinking water also plays an important role in preventing cavities.
As part of its Rethink Your Drink campaign, the Delta Dental Foundation has committed a total of $100,000 to REPLACE existing drinking fountains at a number of selected schools in Indiana with new Elkay water fountain/bottle filling stations installed by P-M & Associates of Indianapolis.
What your school could win
Your school could be one of those selected to receive the following:
- One or more brand new water fountain/bottle filling stations (including installation)
- Water bottles for all students and staff
