A multimedia project by the Hamline School of Education's Center for Environmental Education (CGEE) has won a Watermark Award for communications excellence from the American Water Works Association, Texas Chapter (AWWA) and the Water Environment Association of Texas (WEAT) in the school curriculum category. You can see the project, called Waters to the Sea: Trinity River on CGEE's web page
The Watermark Award recognizes Texas section AWWA and WEAT members who have produced top quality communications. The award application was submitted by the Trinity River Authority, one of CGEE’s many partners in the production and implementation of the program. 

Waters to the Sea: Trinity River also was a finalist for the Texas Environmental Excellence Awards in the education category. According to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality: "Under the Waste Reduction Policy Act of 1991, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) initiated the Texas Environmental Excellence Awards in 1993. Presented every spring, the awards are given in up to nine diverse categories across the public and private sectors. By honoring these winners, the TCEQ hopes to encourage other citizens to initiate like-minded projects and reinforce a spirit of environmental stewardship."
