Schools of all grades are eligible to apply for the grant.

Delta encourages schools to get their students involved in the fun while teaching them the importance behind drinking water.

“We encourage them to do some type of creative art project. North Parkway Middle School actually did a video last year. The the school secretary wrote a rap song that the students then did a music video about, and, you know, it was a it was a fun way for the kids to get involved,” Missy Acosta, the Vice President of Brand Strategy at Delta Dental of Tennessee.
