Knowing how important it is to stay hydrated to stay healthy, 6th grade Talented and Gifted Students at George Washington Middle School noticed a problem in their cafeteria. If students wanted to get a beverage with their lunch, they had to either get milk or nothing unless they were willing and able to pay an additional dollar for water. After considering several different alternatives, these students are advocating for water filtration stations in their cafeteria. This would give all students a healthy choice at lunch and not create more plastic waste for the environment.
