2017 Butler County Children's Water Festival - Volunteer Registration 

You're invited to volunteer at the Butler County Children's Water Education Festival on Friday, October 13th. This year marks the 20th annual Festival and will be held at the Miami University Hamilton Campus. During the festival, elementary school classroom groups will participate in hands-on activities to teach them about the importance of water both as a natural resource and as a source of drinking water.

We are seeking volunteers to help us guide the classroom groups through the event as well as volunteers to help with the logistics. No experience is required!

Register Now! 

More Information

Volunteers at the Water Festival staff the following activities:


  • School Guides: One volunteer is needed for each of the approximately 40 school groups attending the festival. The volunteer will be resposnible for leading the class to its scheduled presentations on the campus. These volunteers will be paired with their class as the schools arrive. For continuity, we would prefer that the school guides be available for the 4.5 hours the school will be on campus (9:00am-1:30pm for 1/2 the students; and 9:30am-2:00pm for the other 1/2).


  • Bus Router-Arriving: Volunteers will help the arriving students get matched with their volunteers as they arrive on campus.
  • Bus Router-Departing: Volunteers will help the departing students get matched with their buses as they leave the closing.
  • Hall Monitors:Ten to fifteen volunteers are needed as hall monitors to assist any lost children or guides. Hall monitors will also be available to help address any problems with presenter displays.
  • Breakfast/Lunch Room: Approximately two volunteers will be needed for the presenter breakfast/lunch area. We will have donutes and coffee available for presenters in the morning as they arrive and box lunches for lunch. The breakfast/lunch room volunteers will help make sure coffee is available and lunch service is running smoothly. These volunteers will also help make sure box lunches brought by the schools are distributed to the schools at lunch.
  • Miscellaneous: A variety of small tasks will require volunteers. Listed volunteers may be able to complete some of these tasks, but additional volunteers may be needed. Miscillaneous tasks include decorations and tidy-up detail (the university will do the actual clean-up). I expect that we will have other needs for volunteers that have not been identified in this list.
  • Cleaning Crew: Volunteers will be responsible for removing signs from the classrooms, making sure all rooms are cleaned up, helping presenters load material and any other tasks as needed.
