Colorado Corn talks water with local youth at Children’s Water Festival in Greeley
Colorado Corn Communications Director Eric Brown was on hand at the Greeley Children’s Water Festival to discuss H2O with about 1,000 fourth-graders, covering how much water goes into food production, as well as other facets of everyday life.
This event offers professionals from various aspects of the water, ag and other industries an opportunity to bring presentations and activities about water, conservation, health, and aquatic life to Weld County youngsters. The event also provides teachers with materials and lessons that they can use for years to come.
The Central Colorado Water Conservancy District created the Children’s Water Festival in 1991, and it now stands as one of the oldest children’s water festivals in the nation.
Who is Colorado Corn?
Colorado Corn, based in Greeley, is made up of the Colorado Corn Administrative Committee and the Colorado Corn Growers Association.
The Colorado Corn Administrative Committee (CCAC) oversees how Colorado’s corn check-off dollars (one penny per bushel of corn produced in Colorado) are spent on research, market development, outreach, education and other various endeavors.
The Colorado Corn Growers Association (CCGA) is comprised of dues-paying members who are politically active, focusing on policy that impacts corn producers and ag in general.
