Dear Presenter,

Your company or organization is invited to submit an application to participate in the Orange County Youth Environmental Summit, known previously as the Children's Water Education Festival, which will be held virtually Monday, April 19 through Friday, April 23.

The mission of YES is to educate students about water-related and environmental issues that support Next Generation Science Standards. Through interactive and engaging sessions, YES teaches youth that they can make a difference in protecting our resources today, tomorrow and for future generations.

The event is expected to attract more than 7,000 third, fourth and fifth grade teachers and students and is a continued success because of the involvement of organizations like yours.

To participate, please complete the online application and follow the PRESENTER GUIDELINES to help us guarantee students are provided a standardized experience.

Due to the new virtual format, we ask that all presenters, regardless of past participation, submit a new application by March 19, 2021

Although YES will take place over a five-day period, you are not expected to be available all five days. Additional information is available in the Presenter Guidelines.

If you have any questions or would like additional information, please call (714) 378-3257 or email
