You can support Caring for Our Watersheds (CFW) in various ways! We're looking for volunteers to fill the following roles:
Help us sort through written CFW grant proposals to select the top projects for our contest. Students selected for the final competition receive implementation funds and are eligible to compete for a chance to earn cash prizes for themselves and their school! There are three steps to the judging process:
Step A: January 8th, 2024
Step B: January 10th and 11th, 2024
Step C: January 16th, 2024 (9AM - 2PM)
Guide a team through the implementation process of their project from February 8th to May 10th, 2024, and prepare them for the final competition. Mentors typically meet with their teams once a month for quick check-ins. This takes place both remotely and in person.
Mentors are responsible for CONSULTING and GUIDING students on their watershed projects when needed and periodically reporting the status of the project to the Program Ambassador. Students usually take over the project on their own, but it’s helpful to have someone checking in on them so we can identify concerns prior to the finals. The Program Coordinator and Ambassador will guide and assist mentors. Mentor resources will also be made available.
Write constructive feedback (5 - 8 sentences) to students who entered the contest. Students can use this feedback to enter the contest the following year. A stipend is available ($5 per feedback). Greeley-Evans School District will direct these individuals to complete a vendor form. Individuals will not receive a 1099 (tax form) unless the amount of money received from the school district exceeds $500 in a calendar year.
Each writer decides how many proposals are assigned to them and when they write their feedback. A template will be provided for writing feedback along with examples and other resources. Writers will receive their assigned proposals in early February and have until mid-March to turn in all feedback electronically.
The date is approaching fast and we’re making preparations. Don’t miss out! Judging of written proposals will begin January 8th.
The big day may have come and gone, but we're still recruiting volunteers for next year. If you're interested contact us.
