Water's Cool @ School!

Providing access to drinking water throughout the school day gives students a healthy alternative to sugary beverages like soda pop and sports or juice drinks. Drinking plenty of water can help combat obesity, increase energy levels and may improve students’ cognitive functions.

We're excited to announce the 2021 Delta Dental of Tennessee Water's Cool @ School Grant program!

We had so many great responses from Tennessee elementary schools last year, and now we're challenging Tennessee middle schools. 

All Tennessee middle schools are encouraged to apply by November 23. Delta Dental of Tennessee will award grants to 25 middle schools across the state.

Grant announcements will be made in early 2022, and installations will be scheduled for spring 2022.

Watch a short video about the Water's Cool @ School Program.

Top 5 Schools receive water bottles for all students, faculty and staff when their bottle fillers are installed.

How to get started: 

  1. Create a short video or other creative project highlighting how water is good for your health and teeth, why your school needs the bottle filling station, or what makes a healthy smile.
  2. Share your project on social media with the hashtag #WatersCoolTN and include a link with their grant application. A creative project is not required, but applications that do include one will be credited.
  3. Include photographs of the current water fountain that the school would like to replace, which will help inform the installation process for selected schools.

Get educational resources to help in the classroom, including activity sheets, experiments and more. Middle school materials are coming soon!
