2017 Penn State Extension Youth Water Educators Summit Receives National Recognition

The Penn State Extension 2017 Dive Deeper - Youth Water Educators Summit was recently recognized as the 2017 Excellence in Natural Resources/Environmental Education program winner by the National Association of Extension 4-H Agents (NAE4-HA).
“This award is given annually to one national winner, and is a great honor to receive.” says Jennifer Fetter, Dive Deeper Steering Committee Chair and Penn State Extension Educator.
The award recognizes outstanding efforts in the field of environmental education that have high educational value significantly benefiting the environment and the community and which also includes collaborative programming with natural resource agencies and organizations.
The award was presented in November during the 2017 NAE4-HA Conference in Indianapolis, IN.
The Dive Deeper Summit is Penn State Extension’s biennial conference of educators, both formal and informal, who teach youth of all ages about water. The summit premiered in 2012, and has been held every other September since then.
Each summit, 100 educators from across the Mid-Atlantic region gather to learn innovative ways to engage youth in water education programs, include new technology tools in their programs, stay up to date on emerging water quality issues in the region, and network with like-minded peers who can be valuable resources beyond the day of the summit.
