Water and Energy Festival
Welcome to the City of Gallup's 10th Annual McKinley County Youth Water & Energy Festival page.  
We are excited this event once again gave critical environmental water education to our local Gallup and GMCS students. 

This year, we had a extremely successful event.  This year we had 17 professional natural resource presenters who taught  450 fourth and fifth grade students on the first day,  assisted by 100+ Miyamura and Gallup High School Volunteer students.   We cannot thank our volunteers and Presenters enough for making the 11th Annual McKinley County Youth Water & Energy Festival an interactive event that meets national educational benchmark standards for our local youth. 

2015 Water & Energy Awareness Day T-SHIRT Contest
All McKinley County 4th through 12th grade students were invited to enter our 2015 Water & Energy Awareness Day T-SHIRT Contest! as an ongoing promotional water-saving advertising campaign.  These students below earned awards for the First through Third place winners. 

2015 Water & Energy Awareness Day T-Shirt design contestants were from Miyamura + Gallup High School and Wingate Elementary School, who designed wonderful new logos.  We had over 100 students submit T-Shirt designs. The first-place design became the official McKinley County Youth Water Awareness Day t-shirt logo to be worn and given to all attending volunteers.  
Extra t-shirts were given to many students and some presenters.

aquifers as the city.
